Trustees of Ghana’s COVID-19 Private Sector Fund are set to construct three new isolation treatment centres in Kumasi, Takoradi, and Tamale.

According to the Co-Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Fund, Edward Effah, it is imperative that 3 additional centres are built in other regions to augment the existing hospitals and also serve as a treatment centre for only infectious diseases.

He explained that construction in the other regions will commence after the 100-bed facility at Ga East Municipal Hospital is completed.

Mr. Effah made this known when Republic Bank donated money to the COVID-19 Private Sector Fund to support the government’s effort in the fight against the novel coronavirus.

“We the businessmen thought it wise to come together and do something that will last and be profitable for all. After we finish with the 100-bed facility at Ga East, we will build a replica in Kumasi, Takoradi, and Tamale. The facilities will also serve as a treatment centre for infectious diseases like Meningitis, SARS, and Ebola aside COVID-19,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Institution of Surveyors (GhIS) together with the Ghana Institute of Architect, the Planners, and Engineers have offered its services for the construction of the 100-bed capacity Infectious Disease Centre at Ga East Municipal Hospital.

GhIS is providing pro-bono land and quantity survey services for the project, whiles the 48 Engineers Regiment of the Ghana Armed Forces supervises the project.
