The Director of the Health Isolation Center in Sabha, Ali Al-Saeedi, said that the isolation center has ceased to efficiently operate and has stopped receiving cases, being totally closed since the September 25 last.

Al-Saeedi attributed the situation, in a press statement, to the ‘all too frequent’ power outages, along with the depletion of fuel stocks to run the generators necessary to run the facilities, as well as the lack of medical oxygen supplies.

He indicated that many suspected patients of Coronavirus, who clearly show symptoms, head to Sabha Medical Hospital to be subjected to isolation, whilst those showing milder symptoms, are being sent home to self-isolate with their families.
