YGH prepares for Thingyan Festival emergency treatments

Specialist Dr Cho Zin Phoo, from the emergency ward of Yangon General Hospital (YGH), has stated that the hospital has bolstered its medical staff and replenished medical supplies in preparation for providing emergency treatments during the Thingyan Festival.
The emergency ward undertakes these preparations annually during the Thingyan Festival to ensure emergency treatments for accidents and to continue offering regular healthcare services to the public.
“YGH typically plans as the Water Festival approaches to offer medical treatment for accident injuries and emergency healthcare during the festivities. This planning involves scheduling additional shifts for medical staff and stocking the necessary medicines and drugs for treating the injured. Furthermore, since private clinics are closed during the Thingyan Festival, we also prepare for patients with regular illnesses, including providing accommodation for them,” explained Dr Cho Zin Phoo.
Additionally, as the Water Festival coincides with a period of very high temperatures, the Ministry of Health advises the public to seek shade under trees, in parks, pandals, and well-sheltered buildings from 11 am to 4 pm to avoid harmful ultraviolet rays. Furthermore, they recommend controlling alcohol consumption, as high alcohol levels in the body can be dangerous. — ASH/TMT
