(Bloomberg) – Zimbabwe’s Health Ministry invited tenders to supply oxygen to its medical facilities as the number of coronavirus infections surge.
The request was made for hospitals already facing strain from a shortage of beds and equipment, which threaten to overwhelm the nation’s weak public-health system.
The tender closes January 18, the ministry said in an advertisement published in the state-owned Herald newspaper. Portia Manangazira, the director for epidemiology and disease control in the ministry, declined to comment.
Zimbabwe has recorded 23,239 cases of Covid-19 and 551 fatalities, according to Health Ministry data.
