Covid-19: Ho gets equipment to test 2,000 more samples daily

 Mr Kweku Agyeman Manu, Minister for Health, has presented a State-of-the-Art COVID 19 testing equipment to the Ho Testing Centre to enhance its testing capacity and aid research on the Coronavirus disease.

 



The equipment, a full set PRC Real-time Machine was given by the Ghana Atomic Energy, after it received it as part of logistical support from the Vienna based International Atomic Energy Commission.

“With this new Testing and Research Equipment, the Ho Covid-19 Testing Centre could now test 2,300 samples within 24 hours; hitherto, the Centre could only run 100 to 300 samples within the said hours,” Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, Volta Regional Minister, who together with Professor John Owusu Gyapong, Vice Chancellor of the University of Health and Allied Sciences received the equipment, said.

He was full of gratitude to stakeholders for the upgrade, and said the testing capacity of the facility would be increased sevenfold.

The Regional Minister said the Centre would now meet testing demands from beyond the Volta and Oti Regions.

Volta Region recorded 33 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus disease with 28 recoveries, one death and the remaining said to be responding to treatment.
