A handful of specialists have arrived from Israel, Germany and France to help treat the 140 people who were taken to hospital after the fire at Colectiv on Friday night, emergency situations official Raed Arafat said.

Of those, 90 are in a critical or serious condition.

Mr Arafat said that even if burns patients initially survive their injuries, medical problems can continue long afterwards as “they tend to evolve in a stable manner and then start collapsing”. 

He said some cases need frequent operations and their wounds need to be cared for.

The government says it will cover patients’ medical costs.

The Israeli medics are working at the Bagdasar-Arseni, an emergency hospital, according to the Mail. Hospital spokesman Andrei Carantino said the medics brought special bandages to treat severe burns.
