Description : Her grandmother tells us that she has been waiting at the laboratory for over four hours to get the results of the girl’s tests. The patients wait for long hours to get care. The hospital is stretched beyond capacity with over a thousand people coming in every day. Most hospitals have shut down due to lack of medical supplies and fuel.
