Reports that the dialysis machine in Mulago hospital has also broken down have intensified the fears expressed by legislators.

“Something has to be done urgently. This situation is very dangerous,” warned Alaso during a plenary session on Thursday.

Former Vice President Dr Gilbert Bukenya warned “it is suicidal for the intensive care unit to shut for even one day.”

He said the mortality rate would be high if emergency measures are not taken.

Sections of the media have since reported that Mulago recently procured new but fake filters which could hardly be used in treating on critically ill patients.
