All COVID-19 patients at UER Hospital discharged

Bolgatanga, May 23, GNA – All persons infected with the COVID-19 and receiving treatment at the Upper East Regional Hospital in Bolgatanga have recovered and discharged.



According to Mr Dickson Baba Nsoh, a Clinical Psychologist at the Regional Hospital, more than 10 people have been treated and discharged at the facility although it did not include those receiving treatment at home.

“The fact of the matter is that, we have been able to successfully manage and discharge all those we were having at the treatment Centre but do not forget we were having some that were being managed from home.

“I would not want to give statistics because when it comes to COVID-19, there is somebody who should be doing that but far more than 10 persons have been discharged,” the Clinical Psychologist disclosed.

Mr Nsoh disclosed this at a training session on stigmatization, organized by the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in Bolgatanga.

The Upper East Region has so far recorded 26 confirmed COVID-19 cases with two deaths.

Earlier, the first pregnant woman who had tested positive for the virus was treated and discharged.
