COVID-19: Two KATH nurses contract virus Featured

By Benedicta Akplor, Kumasi May 12, 2020 302 2 comments

Two health workers at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) have tested positive for COVID-19, the Chief Executive Officer, Dr Oheneba Owusu Danso, confirmed yesterday. 

A press statement signed by the CEO indicated that this was after a periodic test was conducted among the staff to ensure that they are in the right state of mind to work because of how risky their jobs are.

He, however, noted that some of the staff who tested positive earlier tested negative upon further test.

No mask, no entry

Meanwhile, management of KATH over the weekend  imposed operation 'NO MASK NO ENTRY' at the facility, as part of measures to ensure that staff, patients and their families adhere to the approved protocols introduced by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo to stem the spread.

According to the statement, “Management wishes to indicate that the hospital’s Security Unit and all in-charges have been directed to allow only patients and visitors with face masks to enter the hospital and all service areas.”

Again, the hospital has directed that all patients on admission are allowed two visitors to visit them at a time during visiting hours.

Again, Dr Oheneba Owusu Danso assured that there are enough Personal Protective Equipment(PPEs) to safeguard the security of the staff.

The CEO again debunked claims that the mortuary department has no space to accommodate new dead bodies, stressing that there are more space available for dead bodies.
