CHIREDZI – A male cholera patient
recently escaped from Chiredzi General Hospital and took his medication with
him, TellZim News has learnt.
A source who spoke to TellZim News
said nurses were shocked to find the patient’s bed empty when he had not yet
been formally discharged.
The source said three other
patients were still admitted at the hospital following a cholera outbreak which
was first reported some two weeks ago.
“One of our cholera patients escaped
from the hospital and he took away all the drugs. Currently we still have some
three female cholera patients at the hospital who are recuperating well and
they are all from Triangle,” said a source.
The source said the patient came
from Village 11B, Monyoroka in Triangle.
Chiredzi District Medical Officer
(DMO) Dr Brian Dhlandhlara, however, said the patient did not escape but was
properly discharged.
“The patient was properly
discharged as he was in a stable condition. He didn’t escape,” said Dhlandhlara.
Last week, Chiredzi District
mobilised resources from various stakeholders including the Population Services
International (PSI), Plan International, Kapnek and SolidarMed to fight the
cholera outbreak.
