Power outage in Kairouan due to electrical transformer failure caused by bird

Sunday’s power outage in Kairouan (at about 8pm) is due to a electrical transformer failure in el Ghabette, Northern Kairouan. This failure was caused by a bird which hit two loaded elements (phase 2), the National Electricity and Gas Company (French: STEG).
Staff acted swiftly and power was restored gradually minutes later to reach 95% at 8:12 pm.
No deaths were reported among COVID-19 patients hospitalised in Kairouan in the wake of power outage Sunday, local health director Mohamed Rouis said earlier.
