Mpilo Hospital Sees Increase In Covid -19 Patients

Bulawayo Mpilo Hospital has recorded an increase in the number of admissions at its Covid-19 isolation ward with more that 20 people admitted per day.

The isolation ward at Mpilo’s C1 was created for patients with Covid-19 symptoms who should be monitored and tested before they are transferred to the United Bulawayo Hospital (UBH) if they test positive.

UBH is at the moment the only designated public health institution in the city which is supposed to admit all Covid-19 patients at its Old Bartley’s Memorial Block.

Bulawayo is now the country’s Covid-19 epicentre and accounts for more than a third of the country’s active cases.
