MOSCOW, November 16 /TASS/. The first two An-124 planes with a field hospital and medical supplies onboard have left Sochi on the Black Sea for Conakry airport in Guinea, the Russian Defense Ministry spokesperson, Major General Igor Konashenkov, told journalists on Sunday.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has ordered the transportation of a field hospital to Guinea to fight the Ebola virus.
“Both military transportation planes are carrying more than 150 tonnes of medical and special equipment for deploying a field hospital, including intensive care and intensive therapy wards as well as special diagnostics laboratories,” Konashenkov stressed.
He added that 200 people suffering from highly dangerous infections could simultaneously undergo treatment in the hospital and stay separately from each other during the entire period of quarantine.
