By Aaron Humes: The Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) announced today that it is restricted from taking in more patients generally due to the COVID-19 situation.
A statement from the hospital issued tonight says that “the facility has reached a critical point where patient admissions are concerned…The Covid ward is again almost at capacity and the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is full. We have admitted seven Covid patients today and are evaluating more patients for possible admission.”
The KHMHA, a statutory body, has informed the Ministry of Health and Wellness. It has previously cut all outpatient clinics and elective surgeries for patients with other conditions.
The news comes ahead of the two-week tightened regulations imposed starting tomorrow Monday, which included a longer curfew and limitations on movement on Sundays. Additionally, the Ministry is stepping up its vaccination campaign especially in the face of now public resistance from some quarters.
The hospital says, “We regret the inconvenience this will cause to the public and will endeavour to resolve this issue as soon as possible. We appreciate the cooperation of the public as together we go through this difficult time.
We encourage persons who are eligible to be vaccinated to do so, and to help us by avoiding the risk of becoming critically ill with severe Covid-19 infection.”
