Bulawayo COVID-19 cases will be transferred to Harare’s Wilkins Infectious Diseases Hospital since Thorngrove Infectious diseases hospital is still not ready to cater for patients, the Daily News reports.
This was revealed by the local government minister July Moyo who was addressing journalists on Saturday after meeting Beautiful Bulawayo Trust members. Minister Moyo said:
If something had to happen tomorrow, unfortunately they would have to go Wilkins … I am saying if something had to happen, I’m not a medical (officer), but depending on the intensity, they would have to go to Wilkins
Throngrove Hospital, which has a 30 beds capacity is reportedly going under renovations. Bulawayo has so far not recorded a single COVID-19 positive case. Mutare has also reported that Mutare Infectious Diseases Hospital is also not ready to cater for COVID-19 patients and have turned a Male Circumcision Unit at the provincial hospital in Mutare into a 4 bed COVID-19 isolation centre.
