Several temporary tents set up for the Covid-19 screening test as well as emergency screening at the front of the Emergency and Trauma Department, Kulim Hospital, were flooded due to the heavy downpour in the area.

The chairman of the state Health and Local Government Committee, Datuk Dr Mohd Hayati Othman, said, as reported by Berita Harian that the incident happened at about 5pm following the heavy rain. He informed that the flash flood was caused by drainage problems in the parking area located near the tents. He said, 

“Previously, the Kulim Hospital had applied to enlarge the drain in the parking area. I have also raised this matter with my superiors and am waiting for further action.”

Fortunately, all the high-value equipment from the tents was successfully transferred to a safe place and there were no unwanted incidents and injuries reported. The area is now back in operation after the flooding receded.
