WESTERN Province has received its share of oxygen support from the government this week.
Eight gas cylinders were delivered to Western Province’s Health and Medical Authorities.
In an interview with Island Sun Gizo, Director of Western Health and Medical Authority, Dr Dickson Boara said the cylinders will be distributed to Noro and Munda when there is a need for oxygen support on patients.
He said the cylinders are still at Gizo Hospital and his team is working on plans to transport them to Noro and Munda soon.
“At the moment we are yet to register a COVID-19 who badly needs oxygen support. Most COVID-19 patients are mild,” Boara said.
It is understand that Western Province has 171 positive cases where 80 patients are recorded at Noro, 41 cases at Munda and 50 cases at Gizo.
