Kabale University supports Kabale Regional Referral Hospital renovate the Intensive Care Unit for COVID-19 victims
Kabale University is supporting the renovation of the Kabale Regional Referral Hospital (KRRH) Intensive Care Unit, an initiative worth 72 million shillings. The Intensive Care Unit is being revamped in preparation for any severe COVID-19 victim in need of critical care at the hospital.
While on a trip to Kigezi region, assessing the implementation of COVID-19 programmes, Dr. Diana Atwiine, the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Health Uganda lauded Kabale University and its administration for responding to the president’s call for various parties to help in combating the pandemic.
Prior to revamping the Intensive care unit, Kabale University despatched a number of about 30 medical professionals including professors from the School of Medicine to help in the fight against COVID-19.
The KRRH director, Dr. Sophie Namasopo however, recently reported that the hospital requires more beds and ventilators since the hospital has got only 10 ventilators and monitors.
