A video has surfaced online showing how joy filled the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after a number the COVID-19 patients there recovered fully.
The footage showed a fleet of cars carrying all the recovered patients as they moved out of the facility amidst waves, cheers and applause from health workers standing by to witness the amazing moment.
All the recovered patients who were admitted at the hospital after testing positive for COVID-19 repeatedly tested negative after receiving some treatments.
See video below:
Chief Executive Officer of the Hospital, Daniel Asare, indicated that the series of confirmatory test that turned negative provided enough reason and confidence to discharge the patients.
The seven patients were from Accra and Bolgatanga and included a nurse, a doctor and a security officer, who were all infected after coming into contact with an infected patient.
Interestingly, one of the seven was in critical condition but was able to return to a stable state before recovering.
In another interesting report, a Ghanaian historian who appears to be stationed at the Ancestral River Park at Assin Manso in the Central Region of Ghana has argued that "Jamaica" is an Akan term.
In a snippet of GBCNews sighted by YEN.com.gh, the gentleman explains that the term "Jamaica" may sound like a word from the land of Jamaica itself but in reality, it was a group of Akan slaves that named the place with the term.
The historian explained that the word Jamaica actually comes from "perhaps, I've remained here" in Akan, which is said in a similar word-pronunciation as "Jamaica".
