Doctor Of Ridge Hospital Reportedly Tests Positive For Coronavirus


A Specialist doctor with the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (Ridge), is under self quarantined after he reportedly tested positive for the Covid-19.

He had returned into the country from South Africa, prior to the partial lockdown, the Hospital management said in a release on Friday April 3, 2020.

“This came to the fore after he had undergone the two weeks of mandatory self-quarantine. The COVID-19 team has since been taking care of him at the self-quarantine centre and he is currently doing well,” the statement added.

It added that Management of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (GARH), Ridge, is in touch with him and we will support him till he recovers.

“We have also put in place all other measures to ensure that all the necessary care he needs is provided,” it assured.

The statement emphasised that the case was not locally transmitted but rather imported from South Africa.

Currently, no frontline staff at the facility has tested positive as safety measures have been put in place to ensure that no staff gets infected.

The hospital management, therefore, urged colleague staff and family of the doctor to stay calm and support him.
