  • Table 2 shows the number (%) of surgical operations performed by recorded body region for all patients and for adults and children alone. Timing of operations are split into ‘first wave’ (emergency surgery performed up to 9:00 hour on 23 May 2017), ‘second wave’ (emergent surgery performed after 9:00 hour on 23 May 2017) and ‘later operations’ (surgery performed after the first day up to 30 days following the incident).
