Residents of Tullus in South Darfur complain of an increase in malaria and a poor health care in the locality.
One of them told Radio Dabanga that patients in Tullus Hospital had to take mattresses, sheets and blankets from their homes. “They have to lie on the ground, as there are not enough hospital beds for the increased number of patients,” he said.
“Many of them are afflicted with malaria, and the medicines are scarce. In particular after Eid El Adha [Muslim Feast of the Sacrifice, celebrated end September this year], malaria spread rapidly,” he explained. “Some people even died.”
He added that those who can afford it, take their sick relatives to Nyala, the capital of South Darfur.
