Diarrhoea Patients Isolated At Mpilo Hospital

Mpilo Hospital has reportedly isolated diarrhoea patients in an effort to stop the infected patients from spreading the disease to other patients, The Chronicle reports.

This was revealed by the acting Mpilo Central Hospital clinical director Dr Xolani Ndlovu who was speaking to the publication about the cases when he said:

That (isolating patients) is the procedure that is followed with such outbreaks so that the disease does not spread to other patients who are already admitted to the hospital with other ailments.

I don’t have the details as to how many patients have been separated at the moment but what I know is that we had admitted more than 100 people.

The number includes those who have been discharged, died or still under treatment.

12 people have died since the onset on the Typhoid and Dysentery outbreak in Bulawayo this month and the city also recorded over 1500 infections. BCC has in the meantime excluded Luveve and surrounding areas in the water-shedding schedule.
