Mulago Speaks Out On Covid Deaths, Faulty Oxygen Pipes
By; Denis Kayongo. Mulago National Referral Hospital has responded to what they termed false allegations from a Sunday Monitor publication concerning death of two covid-19 patients as a result of faulty oxygen pipes and insufficient oxygen supply.
The article published on Sunday after several months of investigation lists various other shortcomings in the hospital healthcare delivery and its response to the coronavirus pandemic, including complaints from health workers who lack adequate equipment, are overworked and on low pay.
While addressing journalists at the hospital yesterday, the executive director, Dr Byarugaba Baterana, denied most of the issues raised in the investigative story.
