As the Covid-19 cases surge in the Ashanti Region, management of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) has outlined tougher measures to protect its staff and the general public from the deadly virus.
Signed and approved by its Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dr Oheneba Owusu Danso, management said in a statement that it had declared the facility as “facemask wearing zone”, adding that it is in line with the directive outlined by the Ministry of Health to check the spread of Covid-19 in Ghana.
“Management wishes to indicate that the hospital’s Security Unit and all in-charges have been directed to allow only patients and visitors with facemasks to enter the hospital and all service areas,” the hospital’s CEO said in the statement.
The statement further reminded the public that “in pursuance of this objective the public should note that all patients on admission are allowed two visitors who could visit one at a time during visiting hours.”
KATH also reminded the public to desist from using the facility as a thoroughfare.
