The Health Minister adds efforts are also underway to address mechanical breakdowns.

“Part of the issue with the mortuary I believe is the compressor. I have been briefed by the Divisional Medical Officer Eastern that the parts are available and should be coming soon and they will be rectifying the problem.”

Dr Lalabalavu reaffirms the Ministry’s commitment to resolving these issues promptly, ensuring uninterrupted service delivery to the community.
