A fire at the Thambalagamuwa Regional Hospital in Trincomalee has resulted in the destruction of all medicine stocks in the hospital's warehouse. This includes essential and general medicines, as well as life-saving drugs. As a result, patients receiving treatment at the hospital will now need to receive the necessary medicines from other hospitals in the district.
Both institutional and police investigations are currently underway to determine the cause of the fire, which occurred at around 5:40 in the morning on October 1st. The loss of medical supplies is a significant concern, and authorities will work to ensure that patients continue to receive the care they need despite this unfortunate incident.
