Angola: Cases of Tuberculosis Decrease in Moxico

Luena — The cases of tuberculosis in sanatorium hospital of Luena, eastern Moxico province, fell by 12 in September, compared to 9 in last October, says an assessment report the institution delivered Thursday to ANGOP.

According to the source, the decrease is due to the abiding by the medical advice by patients who flock daily to that hospital.

With a capacity of 20 beds, the sanatorium hospital assists 15 patients per day.

The services are secured by a doctor of Vietnamese nationality, 59 technicians and administrative staff.
