Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) has announced the decision to downgrade some of its services including temporarily suspending routine surgeries due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.
In a statement released by IGMH today, the hospital announced that some of its services have been changed to the rising COVID-19 cases in the Greater Malé area. Due to the current COVID-19 situation, it has decided to downgrade some of its services.
Starting from 22nd January, the hospital will halt routine surgeries for up to two weeks. Moreover, the resumption of these services will be announced after reviewing how the COVID-19 situation develops in the upcoming days.
