Admission Capacity Of COVID-19 Private Hospital In Herat Full

Kabul: Health officials in Herat province said that the capacity to admit patients infected with the coronavirus at the COVID-19 Shidayee private hospital in the province is now full.

Abdul Hakim Tamana, Herat’s director of public health, said on Tuesday that all 130 beds in the hospital were now full and added that authorities were working to release some of the patients who had recovered from the hospital.

This comes as the Ministry of Public Health recorded 1,724 new COVID-19 cases and 54 deaths on Tuesday. The total positive cases now stand at 84,050, while the death toll is 3,305.

Tamana also stressed that the Razi Hospital with a capacity of 50 beds for the care of critically ill patients is going to be reactivated.

Meanwhile, the director of Herat Public Health expressed concern that the COVID-19 private hospitals in Herat may soon face the lack of oxygen. According to him, the power supply to Herat, which was cut off this morning as a result of the destruction of a base of Iranian imported electricity, has also exacerbated the problem.

However, Abdul Hakim Tamana stressed that there is currently no problem of oxygen in Herat, but the number of COVID-19 patients is becoming more serious.

He added that he was also talking to the Ministry of Public Health about activating a 100-bed hospital for COVID-19 patients.

Herat health officials are urging people to take the coronavirus seriously and to wear mask and to refrain from participating in rallies.
