Polokwane - Moves are afoot to set up a medical operation centre at Limpopo's Department of Health to assist with any incidences that might arise at the Peter Mokaba Stadium during the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Departmental spokesperson Selby Makgotho said the centre at the provincial offices will be linked to the stadium whenever the matches are being played.
The centre will have a telephone line, two-way radio, television, laptop, emergency lighting system, fire extinguishers, and first-aid equipment.
The Limpopo Provincial 2010 FIFA Health Committee is pleased with moves to set up the centre as well as progress made towards the final preparations for the event.
The Committee, which met at the weekend, confirmed that Polokwane, Mankweng Hospital Complex, Lebowakgomo, Mokopane, Seshego, and Polokwane - Medi Clinic Hospital were ready for the World Cup.
Key facilities at these hospitals such as theatre operations, trauma centres and intensive care units have gone through an intensive checking process and will be ready to handle any casualty during the event.
