CECI offers its Assistance to Eswatini for handling the COVID-19 Pandemic

Following up on the effects of the on-going COVID-19 pandemic emergency, CECI has entered into a Contract Agreement with the Kingdom of Eswatini’s Ministry of Health to provide consulting services for establishing COVID-19 Quarantine Wards at national hospitals.

The Agreement comes in response to the urgent needs in being able to provide proper care and facilities for those who may be infected with the virus in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Kingdom has confirmed more than 187 coronavirus cases and two deaths as of May 14, 2020, and although most of the cases in Eswatini are young and asymptomatic, 10 to 20 percent of the infections have occurred among healthcare workers, showing that the virus containment in the hospital has been problematic.

The Project converts existing ward space at hospitals into special quarantine ward areas that specifically suits COVID-19 needs and will be able to accommodate up to 200 anticipated patients.
