Wau, South Sudan, Feb 19, 2021 / 10:45 am America/Denver (CNA).
A Catholic health centre of the Diocese of Wau has temporarily shut down after all three doctors at the facility tested positive for Covid-19.
The administrator of Sika Hadid Primary Health Centre, Sr. Bibiana Efimi, announced Feb. 17 that the clinic will remain closed for over a fortnight, depending on the recovery of the medical personnel.
“Our clinic is closed down because our doctors are under quarantine; they tested positive and they will be away for two weeks,” Sr. Bibiana confirmed to ACI Africa.
She added, “After 14 days, the doctors will go for another test; if the test is okay then we will open, otherwise it will remain closed.”
The leadership of the hospital, in coordination with the diocesan authorities, have asked the government leaders in Western Bahr el Ghazal state to assist in providing the hospital with doctors to cover for their colleagues in isolation.
