Power blackout leads to deaths at UTH?

UHZLast night’s sudden national power blackout is said to have left a number of children dead at UTH’s D block (children’s ward), hospital sources inform the Watchdog.

A process to cover up and hide this tragedy is underway, sources say.

Apart from being congested where patients sleep on the floor, UTH is ill-equipped to handle power blackouts. Where they have old generators, most times the hospital does not have fuel to power the generators and in emergencies like the one experienced yesterday, it takes hours to restore power using generators.
And for patients, a minute without electricity could be fatal, what more children?
