of Bugando and CUHAS leaders and staff as the way to encourage them to continue serving patients as the way it was before.
In addition Prof Abel Makubi congratulated the Health workers in the country for their commitment in serving the people who are affected by CORONA and other diseases. He also called upon the Health workers not to deny patients who are affected by CORONA in order to reduce death which can be associated with CORONA.
”Any patient even the one who is being suspected with CORONA VIRUS should not be denied at any Health Centre, these patients should continue to be received while taking precautionary measures”. Prof Abel Makubi added that the government through the ministry of Health continues to strengthen the distribution of protective equipments like N95 masks and sanitizers to various Health centers in the country so as to reduce excuses of not serving patients with CORONA due to lack of protective equipments.
Along with that he congratulated Muhimbili, KCMC, BMC and various industries in the country to continue producing protective equipments.
