Drugs, Bodies Go Bad In Hospital

“We used to depend to our single generator which is no longer operating,“said Chinhoyi hospital superintendent Collet Mawire told journalists Dr Mawire. “If  the power outages persist we are likely to lose tonnes of  medicines which require refrigeration. We have since stopped surgical operations on critical patients because of the problem. “

Mawire urged relatives of the deceased to come collect their bodies in time.

ZESA Holdings spokesperson Fullard Gwasira said the erratic power supply at the hospital could be the result of a technical fault. “Hospitals are always our priority. It’s possible that the hospital might have developed a fault because of aged networks. It also important to appreciate those electric faults does happen this wet season.”

“The country last week had some  power  outages  because we  were  operating with two  units with Hwange producing 190  megawats, but  this  is  not to  say  we  switched  off power to our institutions of major  priority,”said Gwasira
