Tens of thousands of people were feared dead in Haiti's catastrophic earthquake, with many buried or trapped in demolished schools, hospitals and hillside shanties in the impoverished capital.

Reports from the field say that at least 1,500 patients have been treated so far at MSF locations. However, teams are seeing patients pouring in. They are doing their best in terms of administering first aid, but surgery needs are huge. The major problem is still blockages at the airport and moving people and freight quickly.
