Jinja Referral Hospital Closes Emergency Unit Over COVID-19 Deaths

Jinja Regional Referral Hospital has temporarily closed its emergency unit following the death of two male COVID-19 patients at the facility.

Although the facility was disinfected on Monday evening and Tuesday morning, patients and their attendants started fleeing for fear of contracting Covid-19.

As a result, management temporarily relocated some of the patients to the outpatient department. However, most of them opted to seek medical services from lower health facilities.

According to a source, the facility was closed at about 6:30PM on Tuesday.
