The ward can also be used to conduct Covid-19 screening for those who are about to give birth.
Homemaker Norfadzlina Ramsah, who is Beluran Hope spokesperson, said the makeshift ward constructed at a walkway of the hospital is ready for use.
“This is to make sure that pregnant women who are suspected to have contracted Covid-19 can be isolated and screened away from patients who test negative,” she added.
Beluran now has five active Covid-19 cases.
Norfadzlina thanked those who have contributed money, materials and other things to the cause, and hopes others will also come forward to help their communities in any way they can.
People like Norfadzlina are not the only ones doing their bit to help the community during this pandemic.
Over the past few days and months, numerous NGOs, individuals and companies have been helping the needy and even the state government to battle Covid-19.
Many kind-hearted folk from other states nationwide have also been making donations to poor students and the underprivileged.
The latest contributors include Pegagau Aquaculture Sdn Bhd, Borneo Bina Jaya Sdn Bhd, Osimal Foundation, Tzu Chi Foundation, individuals like Munira Ladis who have been raising funds for the needy in Kinabatangan, and Adrian Edy who set up a food bank for the poor here.
Apart from the public, those who contributed to Beluran Hope were Upko, Parti Warisan Sabah, Persatuan Perpaduan Rumpun Etnik Sabah, Life Water Sdn Bhd and Labuk assemblyman Samad Jamri.
