The medical personnel, who have already arrived in the region, are made up of a doctor, a nurse and a biomedical engineer who work at the Ate Emergency Hospital, Vitarte.
The group of specialists in Intensive Care Medicine arrived in the San Martín region through an airlift which was coordinated by the Ministry of Health, as stated by the ministry’s adviser, Leslie Zevallos.
