Minister of Health Chitalu Chilufya says there was no loss of life at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka following the power blackout that affected the institution last Sunday.
Dr. Chilufya says the power blackout was because of the planned maintenance works at UTH.
Speaking to Parliament when he delivered a ministerial statement, Dr. Chilufya said the works however exceeded the planed time of 18 hours hence the power blackout.
He said only the medical and surgical wards were affected as other areas were being serviced by a stand by generator.
Dr Chilufya said going forward government will provide alternative sources of power at all hospitals in the country .
