Emergency medical plan on the Expo agenda

THE 2010 World Expo organizer said yesterday that they are working on a medical plan to handle emergencies in the lead up to the event after the Russian Pavilion's project manager had a heart attack on Wednesday afternoon.

Samakaev Rafael, 59, also a designer, was in stable condition at Shanghai East Hospital after receiving treatment. He will remain hospitalized for about one week for rehabilitation and further observation, hospital officials said yesterday.

The Expo organizer is making medical plans, including having doctors and ambulances, for officials who are preparing exhibits, said Fei Jinseng, director of the Visitors Service Center of the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination.

Once the Expo starts next May, the site will have five emergency medical stations. Red Cross volunteers will be on-site and helicopters will be used for emergencies, officials said.
