The COVID-19 section at STNM Hospital was inaugurated in December 2020.
The ground floor, which houses the flu clinic, was filled with slush from the entire hospital, making way to the COVID-19 section.
The COVID-19 section is located below the main nine-storey tall STNM Hospital.
This was on a day when the rainfall was moderate during the day, imagine the situation during hailstones.
Doctors and nurses in the COVID-19 section have been complaining to the authorities that the newly inaugurated COVID-19 hospital, set up in the second half of 2020, had already been suffering from poor drainage issues.
This at a time when COVID-19 spread is at an all time high and doctors and nurses are overworked.
At present, there are 79 COVID-19 positive patients admitted in the COVID-19 section of the hospital.
The section saw 12 new COVID-19 positive admissions on Wednesday. Nine of the 79 patients are in the ICU.
