Treze crianças, de um universo de 524 casos assistidos, morreram durante o último fim de semana, no hospital pediátrico do Lubango “Pioneiro Zeca”, província da Huíla, vítimas de diversas doenças.
O facto foi apresentado ontem à Angop, pela supervisora de enfermagem daquela unidade hospitalar, Teresa de Jesus, que disse terem observado um aumento de três mortes em relação ao mesmo período da semana anterior.
A responsável explicou que as mortes foram causadas por doenças diarreicas agudas, má nutrição, marasmo, bronco-pneumonia e malária  adicionada à diarreia.
“Dos pacientes assistidos, 84 ficaram internados e 40 receberam alta, estando  internados 164 doentes”, precisou.
Acrescentou que grande parte dos óbitos ocorreram pelo facto de os encarregados de educação e pais terem conduzido tardiamente os filhos ao hospital, daí apelar para maiores cuidados como saneamento do meio onde vivem e não só.
Com esse procedimento, referiu, será possível evitar doenças nas crianças, sobretudo nesse período de chuvas.
A fonte acrescentou que o hospital dispõe de técnicos e medicamentosos para atender os casos que possam surgir, tendo lamentado o facto de alguns doentes serem acomodados nos corredores por falta de espaço nas enfermarias.
