Details emerging from a report of autopsies conducted on some COVID-19 bodies at the Ga East District Hospital have revealed that some of the deceased did not die of the coronavirus disease but rather some other health conditions.
The revelation also showed that some of the deceased actually died of the coronavirus after it attacked their lungs and the kidney.
Leader of the COVID-19 test team in Ghana, Dr. Samuel Kaba Akoriyea, said in some of the cases, it was some other symptoms that killed the patients.

According to Dr. Kaba, if a COVID-19 patient has other conditions like diabetes and hypertension, and those diseases are aggressively treated like the coronavirus, it is possible that the person has a chance of surviving.
Dr. Kaba also added that many COVID-19 patients have died because case managers tend to pay more attention to treating the virus at the detriment of the other health conditions.
Ghana on April 30, 2020, joined the league of nations across the world to have conducted autopsies on COVID-19 bodies by disemboweling two bodies that expired after battling the coronavirus.
The move according to experts, is to help unravel the mysteries surrounding the deadly virus.
