But health officials on Wednesday said extra supplies and equipment don’t solve the question of a safe evacuation. Experts say moving newborns and other vulnerable patients is fraught, even under the best circumstances. Doing so requires trained personnel, proper equipment and a transportation plan — requirements that are hard to meet as people trapped in Shifa Hospital navigate dwindling supplies, no electricity and no clear path out.
