The development works of the tent within the Ibn Tofail hospital in Marrakech, which will be dedicated to the Covid-19 cases, are progressing at a steady pace.
The works for the fitting out of this tent are entering their final phase before starting to receive the first patients contaminated by Covid-19.
Accordingly, Karim Kassi-Lahlou, Wali of the Marrakech-Safi region and governor of the prefecture of Marrakech, who was accompanied by the director of the Mohammed VI University Hospital in Marrakech, made a field visit Sunday to learn about the progress of work on this tent, which will be installed within the Ibn Tofail hospital.
The installation of this tent within the Ibn Tofail hospital in Marrakech is part of the implementation of measures taken by the Ministry of Health to promote and expand the system of care for Covid-19 patients including intensive care.
The realization of this project will help to relieve the pressure on other hospital structures in the city.
The additional capacity of this tent amounts to 100 beds equipped with oxygen and dedicated to pre-resuscitation.
The Minister of Health, Khalid Ait Taleb, presented last Wednesday at the Ochre City, the main measures that will be taken to address the latest developments in the epidemiological situation in the prefecture of Marrakech.
The extension of the Ibn Tofail hospital and the development of this tent are among the priority measures announced by Mr. Ait Taleb.
