Two Covid-19 Patients Recover In Hohoe

Negative Coronavirus Test

Two patients of Covid-19 at the Hohoe Municipal Hospital in the Volta Region have recovered, officials have said.

They are a 22-year-old pregnant woman who returned to Hohoe from Ashaiman and has now delivered, and a 32-year-old man who returned from Tema to Hohoe. They were both diagnosed and confirmed positive on April 12, 2020.

Medical Superintendent of the Hohoe Municipal Hospital and Acting Municipal Director of Health, Dr Pius Mensah said the two were discharged and “are back into their various communities.”

He said results of samples taken from the patients on the 14th day from the day of taking the first samples tested negative, necessitating a final test, which was taken after two days, and results were also negative.

Dr Mensah said though there was some level of immunity following the infection, scientists were still researching into how long the immunity lasted hence recovered patients were expected to follow all the necessary precautions, adding that; “recovered cases can be re-infected”.

He said the Hospital recorded three positive cases on May 1, 2020, which were all contacts of the first two cases recorded while 30 additional results of some contacts came out negative although they were yet to receive more results of the contacts.
