ADK Hospital in Male’ City has opened a dedicated Fever General OPD following an increase in patients with viral fever and acute respiratory infection cases presenting to the hospital’s ER and General OPD. 

The Fever GOPD is located at the Health Center Building inside ADK Hospital. 

The Fever GOPD will be open from 04:00 pm to 10:00 pm each day. 

The hospital has asked patients with fever, cough or cold to visit the Fever GOPD. 

Health Protection Agency (HPA) has warned of a significant increase in cases of viral fever in flu in the greater Male’ region over the past three months.   

The move by ADK Hospital to open a dedicated Fever GOPD comes after Indhira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) opened a flu clinic at the building which previously housed the Football Association of Maldives (FAM).
