Korle Bu: Covid-19 resurgence among staff, patients hits 45

 

 –

The Korle Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH) is on very high alert for COVID-19 following a rise of the disease among staff and patients of the hospital.

An internal memo issued last week and sighted by Starrfm.com.gh indicated a resurgence in cases from 3 to 45 between the period September 11, to September 23, 2022.

“Surveillance data from the Public Health Unit of the Hospital indicate that from the week ending 11th September 2022 to the week ending 23rd September, 2022, the number of confirmed COVID-l9 cases has risen from 3 to 45,” the memo issued by the medical directorate of the KBTH said.

Following the alarming trend, a mop-up exercise for COVID-19 vaccination is underway in all Units, Directorates, Departments and Sub-BMCs (UDSs) in the Hospital.

“A static team has also been set up at the Public Health Event Park for the same exercise within the period and beyond. Whilst Management is encouraging staff and patients to take advantage of this mop-up exercise to get fully vaccinated and to have boosters as well, we also recommend that all Heads of UDSs ensure that staff, patients and relatives adhere strictly to COVID -19 protocols at all entry points to OPDs, wards, offices and waiting areas within their buildings/structures.

“These COVID -19 protocols should include, Wearing of facemasks, Observance of hand hygiene (handwashing/alcohol hand-rubbing), Social/physical distancing of at least 2 meters, Prompt isolation and testing of suspected cases,” the memo concluded.
