GENEVA (WKOW) – A spokesman for the World Health Organization says it has rushed out new guidelines for treating victims of chemical warfare agents.
Spokesman Glenn Thomas says the specific guidelines were in the making well before the U.N.'s chemical inspection team began working in Syria this week. However, he says that "we did rush this out" because of the building concern over Syria. Thomas says the guidelines will evolve and change as they get a better understanding of the risks.
U.N. spokeswoman Alessandra Vellucci says the inspection team might need more than 14 days to complete the work. The team's main focus right now is to determine what happened in the August 21 attack in the suburbs of Damascus.
