KUCHING: Sarawak General Hospital (SGH) will be implementing several preventive measures to reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection among its patients, staff and visitors following the increase in Covid-19 cases.

SGH director Dr Nguan Hie Ung said visitors were not allowed to visit patients in the wards during visiting hours except for very critical patients and those authorised by the doctors.

“For emergency cases in the Emergency and Trauma Department (Emergency Department), the patients’ families or visitors are not allowed to enter the premises without the permission from the Department.

“Children under the age of 12 are not allowed to visit the hospital at all and all visitors and guardians are required to always wear face masks while they are inside the wards.

“For children’s wards, only mothers or female guardians are allowed to accompany the patients,” said Dr Nguan in a statement today (May 8).

She  added that the preventive measures would be implemented effective Monday (May 10).
