A group of doctors and nurses at the Tamale Teaching Hospital has been directed to isolate themselves after a patient they came into contact died with symptoms resembling those of COVID-19.
Myjoyonline.com reports that the patient was a woman who was experiencing difficulty in breathing and high fever but passed on before getting tested for the COVID-19 pandemic.
It is confirmed that samples from the deceased have been taken for analysis at the appropriate centre to know if she truly died of the coronavirus.
See the full report below:
The woman whose identity has not been disclosed was actually referred to the Tamale Teaching Hospital from Walewale Hospital after her condition started to get out of control.
Ghana has currently reported 132 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the country with most of them coming from individuals that were compulsorily quarantined.
Fears of a higher level of spread continue to intensify as the number of confirmed cases, suspected cases and contacts to be traced all continue to rise exponentially in the country
In other news, a group of locals in Ghana have been able to come up with an ingenious innovation that is able to pour water for washing hands without having to touch it with one's hands.
The exact location where the small group of locals brainstormed the brilliant invention is not clear but it is obvious that it took place in a Twi-speaking community.
The innovation consists of a bottle filled with water and tied at the neck with a rope that extends downwards to a stick that is left touching the floor slightly.
