Globally covid-19 became pandemic and it affects about 210 countries. Currently worldwide about 2.5 million people were affected and about 1.7 hundred thousand died from the disease covid-19. To tackle this problem countries take different measures. One of the measures that were taken was making ensure availability of personal protective equipment for health Institutions. Our Hospital, Goba referral Hospital is selected for the establishment of isolation center for covid-19. Goba referral Hospital is found in Bale Zone, Goba town and the Hospital has 600 clinical staffs and 230 supportive staffs as well as population coverage is around 2 million. It is 450 Km far from the capital city of Ethiopia (Addis Ababa). Bale zone the remotest zone which is bounded by somale region in the east and south east, borena zone and south region in the west and south west, West Arsi zone in the north. There is a risk that suspected cases may inter from neighboring somale region since there are international boundaries. Goba referral Hospital is currently trained almost all clinical staffs for the response of covid-19. It also established isolation center for the suspected cases of covid-19. There are clinical and prevention team organized by the institution. Clinical team works on isolation centers while prevention team works in community to raise awareness. Prevention team has gone to all districts and provided awareness creations to the community regarding covid-19. Up to now there were 20 suspected patients quarantined and their lab was sent to Addis Abeba waiting for result. However, there is no testing equipment (PCR) and there is huge shortage of personal protective equipment like surgical mask, medical mask, disposable glove, goggles, work uniform, surgical cap.
