Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) has assured the public that all of the affected services following a fire at the disposable goods store of its National Forensic Medicine Institute (IPFN), Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) have recovered from a fire recently, except for a few telephone lines which were being maintained.

HKL director Dr NorAkma Yusuf said the operations of the Emergency and Trauma Department and others involved were functioning as usual.

"HKL continues to inspect and test the technical and medical systems from time to time to ensure the safety of the systems and at the same time ensures that services to patients or clients are not affected," she said.
