An ambulance equipment manufacturer in Turkey is in the process of bankruptcy.
Ambulances equipments maker Medecins Sans Frontieres is on a downward spiral.
The company announced that it had entered into a restructuring agreement with the government of Turkey, but its operations have been shut down since May.
The company, which makes ambulance equipment for the Turkish army and the Turkish Civil Aviation Authority, said in a statement that its main suppliers, including Turkish military and civil aviation officials, have been unable to continue the production of ambulances because of the situation.
The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) said it had ordered Medecin Sans Frontières to stop production of all ambulances, ambulances equipings, medical equipment and equipment for medical care.
Medecinnis Sans Frontiersse, which is based in the United Kingdom, had said earlier that it was closing its doors for good.
Medecins is the world’s largest ambulance manufacturer, and in 2012 it won the Eurocopter award for best ambulance.
It was the first ambulance manufacturer to win the award.
In a statement, the company said the company would continue its production but would stop working with its suppliers.
The move came as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was touring the country, urging his citizens to protect their country from the crisis.
Erdogan said he was taking measures to stop the deterioration of the country’s healthcare system and its ability to deal with the emergency.
