Angola: COVID-19 - Governor of Lunda Norte Wants Strictness in Hospitals

Dundo — The governor of Lunda Norte, Ernesto Muangala, Monday, called for strictness and scrupulous compliance with preventive measures in health units, especially the restriction of visits to patients.

To that end, the government official recommended, during a meeting with hospital managers, the prioritization of the acquisition of drugs and the reinforcement of the diet, as well as biosafety material.

"In this phase, we have to avoid, as far as possible, hospitals lacking medicines and unnecessary hospitalization of patients, as well as guaranteeing a maximum of four meals / day, so that family members with inpatients are calm", he underlined.

He advised hospital officials to maintain permanent contact with relatives of inpatients, via telephone, to inform the evolution of the sick.

He called on the population to denounce hospitals that issue prescriptions for the purchase of drugs and demand that family members take food to their patients, with a view to holding those managers accountable.
