Korle Bu Teaching hospital is doing well also in the treatment of COVID-19 patients and has recently seen a 100% recovery rate. All seven COVID-19 patients who were on admission at Korle Bu COVID-19 Treatment Centre in Accra have been successfully treated and discharged. The patients were discharged after a number of tests that were conducted came negative.
“The Korle Bu Covid-19 Treatment Centre has successfully treated and discharged all seven patients who were on admission there. The patients were discharged after a series of confirmatory tests returned negative. The professional categories of the discharged patients are a nurse, an orderly, a doctor, and a security officer. The patients were from Korle Bu and Bolgatanga Regional Hospital,” a statement from the hospital said.
The total number of COVID-19 patients who have recovered is 294 currently according to Ghana Health Service. The recoveries are low because a series of tests must be conducted to determine a patient has recovered.
This is good news and success for Ghana so far as the fight against COVID-19 is concerned. The hospital indicated in its press statement that they are committed to fighting the virus. I want to thank the other health professionals in the other health centres who are taking so much risk to combat this deadly disease.
