Interestingly, a massive 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Turkey and neighboring Syria in the prime hours on Monday morning, destroying thousands of buildings, including many residential buildings and hospitals, and leaving thousands injured and homeless.
Today, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that the death toll from the earthquake had risen to 8,574 and 49,133 were injured.
Rescuers are still trying to find the survivors trapped under the rubble.
In turn, the World Health Organization said it expects the worst and fears “the result will be eight times higher than the first numbers” published.
