PNG's Port Moresby General Hospital Staff Stress out as Covid-19 cases increase

The head of the Port Moresby General Hospital says doctors and nurses are working overtime, attending to the big number of COVID cases.

Dr. Paki Molumi says fatigue and stress are taking over, with many staff working long hours to contain the surge in cases.


Speaking on NBC Radio's Dabai Show, Dr. Molumi says cases have tripled, but the hospital has sufficient Personal Protective Equipment and oxygen cylinders for patients.

Dr. Molumi further confirmed that Port Moresby General Hospital will reopen for normal services next week, after scaling down services, and only attending to COVID cases and Emergencies over the past week.

Meantime health authorities are urging the public to get vaccinated as COVID-19 is on the rise around the country and it's killing people on daily basis.
