Hudaida's main hospitals, already ruined by years of siege, are struggling to cope with the recent wave of fighting, with medical staff warning that they are unprepared for any escalation.The doctor lamented the state of health care in the city, saying the siege has all but incapacitated Hudaida's two public hospitals, where the equipment is dated and medical staff are forced to rely on generators due to regular power cuts, which is unsustainable because of the scarcity of fuel.Al-Thawra hospital, the biggest hospital in the province, was partly hit by air strikes earlier this month, Amad said, which prompted a significant number of the medical staff, especially female workers, to leave.Al-Thawra, which also receives patients from surrounding provinces, is currently working at a capacity of 8 percent, while the second public hospital in the city is operating at 20 percent.However very few can afford them, adding to the pressure on the city's public hospitals.
