The Chairman of the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) 13-member COVID-19 response team, Prosper Bani has asked government to provide details of the isolation centres meant for the treatment of COVID-19 patients.

Demanding the location of the isolation centres, Prosper Bani said such a facility is not available as is currently being portrayed by government.

“We haven’t seen or I haven’t seen any well-equipped defined isolation centre since this pandemic broke out. Let the leaders demonstrate to us where these isolation centres are, how they are being maned, the equipment they have provided the frontline health workers and how they expect treatment to take place after that,” he requested.

Government has disclosed that infected COVID-19 patients are currently receiving treatment at isolation centres at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (Ridge) and the Tema General Hospital and also in Kumasi at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. Patients will only be moved to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital when the cases are extreme and the existing facilities full.

Moreover, government is building a 50-bed capacity centre at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital to augment the existing isolation centres.

The facility is expected to be completed in a month.

Ghana now has 53 recorded cases of COVID-19 with two deaths and no recoveries, leaving the active cases to 51.

25 of the 26 new cases were among the 1,030 people who are under mandatory quarantine after they arrived in the country hours to the deadline for the closure of the country’s borders.

“Out of the 185 test results received, we have 25 of those quarantined tested positive. If you add on to the earlier number of 27, it means we have 52 tested positive in our country at the moment.

“Those in quarantine, we have actually deployed psychologists to have chats with them. We are also in the process of handing them over to our case management teams we have set up. We have started taking them to isolated centers for case management,” Mr. Agyemang-Manu said.
