Juba, 10 July, 2020 / 8:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Members of the Association of Mary Help of Christians (ADMA) serving in South Sudan’s Catholic Diocese of Wau have set up a Triage Facility at a government-run hospital to help manage reported cases of COVID-19 infections.
The facility, which was established at the Wau Teaching Hospital, “will assist in the process of determining the priority of patients’ treatments by the severity of their condition,” according to Sr. Grace Adkhirayil, the Director of Mary Help Association in Wau who spoke to ACI Africa on Friday, July 10.
“We made some partitions within the existing structures of Wau Teaching Hospital so that all the patients have more space inside and not come in at once,” said Sr. Grace.
She added, “The sisters made some nice flooring and other elements to make the area of Triage in the state hospital so that the environment appears friendly for the patients during the time of an alarming virus.”
Mary Help Maternal and Child Friendly Hospital, the Wau-based facility of ADMA, has a 70-bed-capacity to combat COVID-19.
