It has just been brought to my notice that the Ministry of Public Health has rented a house in Sussex Street, in a rundown slummy area to store medical drugs to be used by the hospitals in Guyana. The house has no proper rack system, no facility for testing and is in unhealthy surroundings.
It is well known that drugs could deteriorate from poor storage and could be infected from the surroundings. What is even more frightening is that patients could die in operation with use of deteriorated ant-biotics and other drugs.
Could President Granger urgently intervene in this matter and bring the Minister of Public Health to confirm to proper health rules?
