Two staff of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, have tested positive for Coronavirus. The two are a nurse and a doctor who work at the Department of Medicine and Department of Child Health respectively.
The two are currently being taken care of in the hospital and are responding to treatment. Staff are therefore entreated to remain calm and follow the basic hygiene protocols.
An internal Communique circulated stated, that Management is committed to ensuring that all staff are safe and protected. It also stated that plans are far advanced to distribute PPEs to all departments as well as procure adequate protective gear to all staff.
These cases come in the wake of concerns from health workers about inadequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) for health workers.
A few days ago, doctors at the Department of Accident and Emergency at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital expressed dissatisfaction with the level of preparedness of the department to combat the COVID-19 disease.
