The AUBMC wants to join the fight against the virus and has been preparing its medical center for weeks now. The hospital’s ‘Flu Clinic’ has been allocated to test and treat coronavirus cases.
In an interview with MTV News, AUBMC Dr. Ziyad Ghazzal announced that the medical center has isolated 11 hospital beds for intensive care, 10 hospital beds for mild cases, and 21 rooms for ongoing cases.
While 75 out of 1,661 tests were positive, the AUBMC does not have many patients in their care as the cases were mild enough to be treated from home-quarantine, says Dr. Ghazzal.
The flu clinic is highly secure and cannot be entered without approval. Moreover, sanitation and sterilization is a never-ending process, according to the report.
