The hospital receives between 600 and 1,000 patients per day and has around 500 workers.

In the last seven days, Covid-19 cases in Rwanda have quintupled comparing to the previous week. Fatalities of the virus also jumped from five to 11 in the last two weeks.

More than 2,700 cases of Covid-19 have been recorded in Rwanda, health ministry data shows.
