THE Wampar Health Centre has lost one of its dedicated nurses, who succumbed to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) after serving Huon Gulf, Morobe, for 20 years.
She was Tuzi Amakua, 47, from Sialum, Tewae-Siassi, who clocked up 17 years at Wampar and three years at the Muya aid post, besides serving Burum-Kuat in interior Finschhafen.
District health manager Pendek Sitong said Amakua’s death left a huge vacuum when health in Morobe was faced with surging the Covid-19 cases, staff shortages with fewer workers risking their lives as frontliners.
Sitong described Amakua as one of the faithful health servants, very humble with a lot of knowledge about her HIV-AIDS patients.
She knew each by name and face.
