Issam Al-Amin, Director-General of Al-Mowasat Hospital, announced that work in the hospital will be restored to its previous era, that is, before the height of the third Corona pandemic.
In a special statement to “Hashtag”, Al-Amin confirmed the return of the outpatient clinics, the reception of all emergency cases, and the resumption of work in semi-elective surgery, which was stopped during the third wave of the epidemic.
Al-Amin pointed out that the curve of the Corona epidemic is stable after its decline, nearly 3 weeks ago, however, the failure to announce the return of work in the Mouwasat Hospital to its full capacity, is due to waiting for the results of the large gatherings that took place during the celebration of the Syrian presidential elections.
And because of the large gatherings of citizens during the celebrations, the fear of an increase in the number of infections increased, due to the citizens’ failure to adhere to the precautionary measures for the virus, and the failure to wear medical muzzeI, during those gatherings, and thus the fear of a fourth wave of the Corona virus, so it was waited another week by announcing the return of work in all departments of the hospital, according to its director.
The Director of Al-Mowasat Hospital, confirmed that there is no fourth peak of the virus so far, and therefore the situation has returned to normal to what it was previously two and a half months ago in the hospital, while observing the epidemiological curve.
