In another sad indictment of the country’s struggling health sector, a major district hospital has resorted to shutting down its mortuary due to incessant load shedding.
Beitbridge District Hospital which has been hit hard by load shedding and high temperatures has now shut down the mortuary services.
In a memorandum, the District Medical Officer wrote,
Notice is hereby given that Beitbridge District
Hospital has temporarily suspended mortuary operations with immediate effect.
This decision has been brought about as a result of the lengthy power cuts and high temperatures being experienced hence rendering the mortuary equipment non-functional. As a result of this, no new bodies will be accepted for storage in the mortuary.
We Apologise For Any Inconveniences
