“The Dialysis machine is already being installed now although that is not something that will be required by most patients.

“A very little percentage of the patients will require the Dialysis machine, but with all these in place, we can say that the centre is fully ready, and the already trained staff are fully ready to receive any case,” the governor said.

The governor, who was accompanied by the Commissioner for Health, Dr Mordi Ononye and his Information counterpart, Mr Charles Aniagwu, also visited the Isolation Centre at Asaba Specialist Hospital and inspected medical equipment donated to the state government by some companies operating in the state.
