KAZAN, July 15 (Itar-Tass) - Some 1,500 people have been recruited to provide medical assistance at the 2013 Summer Universiade in Kazan, Tatarstan's Health Care Minister Airat Farrakhov told Itar-Tass on Monday.
"To provide medical assistance, 1,467 people were recruited, including 650 volunteer medics. "There are six hospitals operating for the Universiade in Kazan, with two air crews and a boat on round-the-clock duty and additional 55 ambulance teams," the minister said.
Medics have permanent posts at all the sport facilities. "Medical assistance is provided at all the 48 facilities. Each facility has a fully equipped medical center. There are separate medical centers for spectators. At least 12 mobile teams are on duty at each facility, plus volunteers who have everything necessary to provide first aid," Farrakhov said, adding that all the personnel have mobile phones and walkie-talkies.
"There has not been a single complaint from athletes or spectators as of today," he said.
