The Director of the Yaounde Central Hospital, Pr. Pierre Joseph Fouda, has said over 90 corpses are pending removal at the health facility.
Among the abandoned corpses, some have been lying at the hospital mortuary for over two years. Pr. Pierre Fouda published a list, calling on the relatives of the deceased to come to the hospital to identify them.
He said “they will be handed to the Yaounde Urban Council for burial” if no one comes for removal.
The corpse with the longest duration at the hospital mortuary was deposited on May 31, 2021.
Most of the dead bodies were brought by the Police, Gendarmerie Brigade and Municipal Councils.
