No human casualties were reported in the fire accident that ravaged the Pasteur Pavillion of the Yaounde Central Hospital on Monday 8th February 2016. The origin of the fire that broke out Monday afternoon has not yet been established but like what the CPDM crime syndicate often say, an electrical fault was believed to have sparked the wild flame that consumed all the documentation and other accessories in the office of the main doctor of the ward who at the time was performing a surgical operation. The material damage was enomous as the entire ward was completely destroyed.
The National Fire Fighting Brigade however contained the ravenging flames from spreading to other parts of the hospital. Shortly after the flames were contained, the Minister of Public Health, Andre Mama Fouda accompanied by the Secretary of State for Health Alim Hayatou and the Secretary of State in the Ministry of Defence in charge of the National Gendarmerie, Jean Baptiste Bokam visited the scene to measure the extent of the damage. Minister Fouda gave standing instructions that the ward should be isolated and electricity supply suspended from the affected building. CPDM corrupt contractors are already queing as the Minister announced emmergency repair measures.
