Bed bugs invade Machinga health centre: Newly born babies affected

Newly born babies at Magamba Health Centre in Machinga risk unorthodox welcome into the world with a bed bug bite as the insects are now a menace in labour and maternity wings.

Women in the wards are frantically pleading with authorities to spray chemicals as soon as possible as the situation has gone out of hand.

Machinga District Hospital spokesman Clifton Ngozo confirmed that bed bugs are now a menace in most health facilities in Machinga including Machinga District Hospital and Magamba Health Centre.

“We do spray chemicals in wards if we are alerted of bed bugs and we will go to the health centre to spray the wards with chemicals that will kill the bed bugs,” he said.

He could however not say when exactly the spraying exercise would start.

Bed bugs have also hit boarding secondary schools forcing some students abandon lessons in extreme circumstances.
