New hospital to cope with Covid

A brand new 50-bed hospital has been put into service to cope with the demands for treatment of Covid-19 patients. Located on Perseverance island within the zone which accommodates the Coast Guard base, the hospital has been built in record time to answer to the recent surge in Covid cases. It is next to the isolation centre which has been in use since last year and not far from the Sheikh Khalifa family hospital, also in use for Covid treatment.

The new hospital has been rushed into service because of the need for hospital beds which risked overwhelming the existing health facilities. Among the benefits, it has released the Anse Royale hospital from Covid related use, and allowed normal health services to be returned to residents of South Mahe. 

The new facility demonstrates the determination of the Government to meet the enormous challenges which have arisen in coping with the pandemic. Since the onset, health facilities have been under increasing pressure, forcing the Ministry of Health to divert attention from other health needs. But the situation came to the crunch with the recent surge. According to health officials, the new facility is a huge relief for them.

The new hospital, which is as yet unnamed, complements the service provided by the Sheikh Khalifa family hospital. The Government is also targeting the construction of a new isolation centre which is to be located near the Seychelles hospital at Mont Fleuri. All these would be part of a network of facilities which have been to use in the campaign against Covid-19.
