Several patients injured in the fire at Colectiv Club were scheduled for transfer on Sunday to hospitals of the UK and Hungary, aboard two Spartan aircraft belonging to the National Defence Ministry (MApN).
“Two C-27J Spartan aircraft of the Romanian Air Forces, configured for medical evacuation missions, are scheduled to carry out on Sunday, November 8, two new emergency humanitarian missions to the UK (…) and Hungary (…) for the transfer of some patients injured in the fire at Colectiv club. The missions will be carried out at the request of the Department for Emergency Situations of the Interior Ministry,” a National Defence Ministry release to Agerpres was informing on Sunday morning.
The source pointed out that the patients were to be assisted during the flights by medical teams coordinated by the Mobile Emergency Service for Resuscitation and Extrication Service (SMURD) and supported by specialist doctors and medical staff of MApN.
Abroad treatment costs to be supported by Gov’t
The treatment costs of the patients, who will be transferred to hospitals abroad, even for those who don’t have medical insurance, will be fully supported by the Government, sources of the Health Ministry told Agerpres on Sunday.
“Goodbye to Gravity” band (the band that was playing at Colectiv club on the night of the tragedy, e.n) drummer Bogdan Enache is one of the patients in this situation, as he doesn’t have medical insurance.
