Posted October 07, 2018 16:33:22 A lympatic air system that has been shut down because of a coronavirus outbreak in NSW has been reinstated.
The NSW Health Department said the system, which has been used to deliver oxygen to patients with breathing problems, was reopening to patients in the coming weeks.
“The Lympic System is back operational,” a spokesperson said in a statement on Monday.
“Patients will be re-introduced to the system once the virus is contained in the region.”
The spokesperson said the air supply would continue to be monitored during the coronaviolirus outbreak.
“It is not known when the system will return to normal operation, however, the system is operational,” the spokesperson said.
The air supply was shut down in December and replaced with a portable oxygen system.
The spokesperson did not say how many people were in the system at the time.
The Lympical System, which is used to distribute oxygen to people with breathing difficulties, is in operation and has been operating for three months.
It was closed in December but reopened last week.
