Rising petrol prices taking toll on private hospitals in Rivers

Private Medical Practitioners of Nigeria say some hospitals in Rivers have shut down, while others are struggling to render optimum services due to the hike in the price of diesel.

He also added that the current price of diesel slightly affected the price of health services.
