Some dental patients at Mutendere clinic in Lusaka are allegedly being turned away due to lack of surgical gloves at the health facility.

The patients say they have not been attended to for the past two weeks, because medical staff do not have surgical gloves.

Aliness Bwalya, a patient has complained to ZNBC news that she has been frequenting the clinic to have her tooth extracted.

She says government should move in and address the situation to avoid complications.

Several other dental patients found at the health facility had similar complaints.

And when contacted for a comment Ministry of Health Spokesperson Kamoto Mbewe says he is not aware of such a problem.

Dr Mbewe says he needed to find out from the relevant people on whether it was true that the clinic did not have gloves.
