MAKKAH: The director of the Directorate General of Health Affairs in Makkah, Wael Mutairi, and the director of the Armed Forces Hospital, Yasser Baabeer, have carried out an inspection at the Makkah field hospital, which is now ready to receive coronavirus patients.
The purpose of the tour was to discuss matters related to the readiness of the hospital, meet and encourage the workers, and observe the final preparations.
Mutairi said that the Kingdom’s government always sets up proactive plans and takes precautionary measures to face emergencies and possible crises. These hospitals are part of the plans that all government authorities are responsible for, with the cooperation of the ministries of health and defense.
Baabeer said that this cooperation emanates from the national and humanitarian duty of all the ministries and government sectors.
With a capacity of 100 beds and covering an area of 2,000 square meters, it aims to help the authorities quickly respond to cases as they appear.
It includes a laboratory, a pharmacy and a digital scanner technically linked with all hospitals, as well as operating rooms and medical supplies that are easy to disassemble and install in any location within 60 working hours.
