COVID-19 Crisis At Mulago Hospital Runs Out Of Hand- Ministry Of Health Confirms
According to the ministry of health records, yesterday Uganda registered over 1083 new covid -19 cases with the biggest number recorded in Kampala.
Weeks ago Dr. Diana Atwine the ministry of health permanent secretary noted that the second wave is worsening with the Intensive Care Units are already full with public hospitals soon running out of space to accommodate patients.
“We are going to get to a level where hospitals must be left to critical patients, right now Entebbe is full, Mulago by yesterday we had 84 and by last evening the number should have increased to 100,” said Dr Atwine.
Atwine added the situation is worrying since the majority of the new infection are from young people.
“Two days ago, we got 187 cases in one day so I can authoritatively tell you that the second wave of COVID-19 is here. Our ICUs and HDUs are full, we lost six young people in one week so be alert.”
In this video released by Emmanuel Ainebyoona the Spokesperson Ministry of Health Uganda, Ambulances are seen in a long queue dropping off COVID-19 patients at the facility.
“The situation at Mulago Hospital as ambulances queue to drop off COVID-19 patients. May the Lord protect us as we do whatever we can to protect ourselves #StaySafeUG “- Emmanuel tweeted.
