The Bolgatanga Regional Hospital has discharged the first person, a pregnant woman, who tested positive for COVID-19 in the region.

The woman who was confirmed COVID-19 positive on April 3, 2020, is believed to have contracted it from Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region after a week visit to the area.

According to the management of the hospital, the patient was discharged after going through the mandatory quarantine at the hospital’s COVID-19 treatment centre and tested negative in her two repeat tests.

According to Mr Zakaria Yakubu, the Administrator of the hospital, the patient had fully recovered from the symptoms of the virus and was duly discharged.

“Yes, she has fully recovered and went home this afternoon. We are reintegrating her into society and will continue to provide her with psychological support and educate her to stay safe.”

“We will also sensitize her immediate family and those around her so they don’t stigmatize her,” Mr Yakuku stated.

The region on April 27, 2020, recorded ten new cases to the initial eight cases with one death bringing the total cases recorded to 18.
