Six months and RM750,000 to repair Johor clinics hit by floods, says Dr Zaliha


SEGAMAT: It will take about six months to repair the flood damage to affected health facilities in Johor, says Health Minister Dr Zaliha Mustafa.

She said six facilities in the state suffered severe damage – one health clinic and five village clinics.

"The damage includes furniture and equipment, as well as medical records," she told reporters after visiting one of the affected village clinics in Kampung Tengah here on Sunday (March 26).

"Operations have resumed at the village clinics, which borrowed items from other clinics.

"The Chaah health clinic, which is the worst-hit facility, is currently operating out of the Pekan Chaah Multipurpose Hall which is about 500m from its own premises," she added.

The other affected clinics are in Kampung Jawa, Jabi, Tenang Station and Temu Jodoh, she said.

"We have assessed the losses suffered by the health facilities and estimate the figure at RM1.8mil.

"It will cost about RM750,000 for the repairs, which will take around six months," she added.
