The government expanded the Tuberculosis ward at Gulu Regional Referral Hospital to a 74 bed-capacity COVID-19 treatment unit. But currently, the facility is treating an excess of 123 patients. The treatment facility admits at least five patients every day who are mainly evacuated from the districts of Pader, Gulu, Amuru, Omoro, Lamwo, Kitgum, Nwoya and Agago.
According to the District Health Officer Yoweri Idiba said the Task Force is soliciting for 3.7 million Shillings for servicing the automobiles. The vehicles being used by the Task Force need services on biweekly basis because of the speed they use while responding to COVID-19 activities.
