Major surgical operations have been suspended at the Yei Civil Hospital and
the blood bank has been closed due to fuel shortage, according to
authorities in Yei River State.
They say most of the patients who are in critical conditions and those who
need major operations are now being referred to private clinics.
The Director-General at the state Ministry of Health says insecurity has
hindered the supply of fuel to the state.
The blood bank was closed partly due to lack of donors.
“So this blood bank at the moment has come to a standstill because there is
no power and people who are supposed to donate blood are not there,” Eye
Radio’s Daniel Friday reported.
There have been reported incidents of insecurity in the area, with
thousands of civilians fleeing to the neighboring areas.
