Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya has directed health facilities across the country to stop the unnecessary delays in attending to patients.
Dr Chilufya says patients should not spend a lot of time waiting to be seen by medical doctors especially during this period of Covid-19.
He said this after an impromptu visit to Solwezi General Hospital where he was impressed with management for reducing waiting time for patients to be attended to.
