MCC Medical Team Makes Historic Delivery
A team comprising of medical staff from Masvingo City Council has successfully made a historic delivery at the district’s Council owned, Rujeko Isolation Centre on a COVID-19 patient.
The delivery was made under strict Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) measures.
The new mother is one of COVID 19 patients who were in quarantine at the district’s isolation centre after returning to Zimbabwe from South Africa. However, on a positive and cheerful note, both the mother and baby are well and have since been discharged after the mother recovered from COVID – 19.
Commenting on the development, Masvingo City Council Acting Town Clerk, Engineer Edward Mukaratirwa applauded the team for the job well done.
‘I want to thank the Matron and the nursing staff at Rujeko Isolation Centre for a job well done. They managed the delivery in a highly professional way in these trying times with limited resources. Their commitment to duty and passion for their profession is commendable and as Management we commit to continuously support them with resources and incentives to make their work easier’, he said.
The medical team boasts of a 100% recovery of all cases as there has not been any single death recorded.
