MoH Union Minister inspects reconstruction of Sittway General Hospital damaged by Cyclone Mocha

Union Minister for Health Dr Thet Khaing Win and Union Minister for Construction U Myo Thant arrived at the Sittway General Hospital damaged by Cyclone Mocha and inspected the progress of repairing the damaged buildings yesterday.
According to the directive of the Chairman of the State Administration Council to “prioritize the reconstruction of public buildings”, the Union Minister for Construction and officials viewed the repairing work of damaged roofs of the hospital and fulfilled the needs. Then, the Union minister and his party inspected the hospital’s water supply provided by the Ministry of Cooperatives and Rural Development.
The Sittway General Hospital, under the guidance of the National Disaster Management Committee, had made preparations before the storm and so it has been able to provide medical services round the clock at the time of the storm and after it.
In addition, the Ministry of Health carried out the work of chlorinating drinking water in wells and ponds in wards and villages in Sittway township yesterday and gave instructions to do the same in the other townships in Rakhine State to prevent the outbreak of diarrhoeal disease.
In addition, the Ministry of Health is coordinating with the Ministry of Construction to reconstruct the damaged hospital buildings in Rathedaung township. A medical team from the Myanmar Army Medical Corps (MAMC) left for Rathedaung township yesterday to reinforce health care activities there.
The Ministry of Health reportedly provided purified water, medications and chlorine to the villages in Maungtaw township, opened the clinics in Thetkaepyin village in Sittway township and coordinated with the Ministry of Construction to reconstruct the storm-hit station hospital as soon as possible. — MNA/MKKS
