COVID hits 35 staff of Korle Bu Hospital

At least 35 staff of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital have been infected with COVID-19, available figures at the premier hospital indicate.

Sources at the hospital say over 70% of the new infections were acquired within the hospital with 30% of the infections coming from outside the health facility.

The hospital has since advised workers to strictly adhere to the COVID-19 protocols to help contain the upsurge in cases.

“As healthcare workers, learn to live safely with coronavirus (COVID-19), it is our responsibility to reduce the risk of catching COVID-19 and passing it on to another healthcare worker or family members,” a notice to hospital staff said.
