As of recent developments in the Covid-19-is-killing-us-all segment, there have been reports of 1,796 positively infected people at the time of writing and a sum of 21 deaths in Malaysia.
The constant daily increase of numbers has hospitals doing the best they can to treat all those impacted by the deadly disease. One of those hospitals, is Enche’ Besar Hajjah Khalsom Hospital (HEBHK) in Kluang, Johor.
Based on a report by the Star online, since the MCO extension announcement yesterday (25th March), and the rapid rise in number of Covid-19 cases, Johor’s Health and Environment Committee chairman, R. Vidyanathan instructed all non-emergency cases at HEBHK, to be moved to nearby clinics or hospitals.
“Elective surgeries and daily treatments procedure have been postponed while outpatient department and specialists clinic service have been relocated to the former Kluang nursing administrative building, which is located next to the old Kluang Hospital starting March 29.”
“Clinical operations after office hours have also been postponed, while entry to new non Covid-19 patients have been stopped except for emergency maternity cases,” he said in a media conference on Facebook today.
The chairman also advised the public to cooperate as HEBHK would become a Covid-19 hospital (the second Covid-19 hospital in Johor after Permai Hospital, Johor Bahru), and no visitors would be permitted in, under any circumstances.
