ABOUT $46 million is required to complete refurbishments at Thorngrove Infectious Diseases Isolation Centre in Bulawayo, but funds are in short supply, an official said yesterday.
The centre is one of the facilities which were designated to cater for coronavirus cases in Bulawayo alongside Ekusileni Medical Centre, the United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) and the Mpilo Central Hospital.
Mater Dei Private Hospital has already completed the refurbishment of its COVID-19 facility.
Mashamba said they were carrying out work that does not require funds.
Addressing journalists, Bulawayo Provincial Affairs minister Judith Ncube said she was happy with progress at Thorngrove.
