Coronavirus forces KATH to suspend OPD services

Reports also indicate that several specialist clinics will also be shut to the public and this is part of measures by the hospital to avoid the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

KATH treats about 1000 patients every day and this comes as a big blow to the indigenes.

KATH has two OPDs, the Special Care OPD and the Primary Care OPD.

The number of coronavirus cases worldwide has now passed 200,000, according to the latest figures from Johns Hopkins University.

The total is now 201,530 confirmed cases and 8,007 deaths.

China still has the highest number of confirmed cases (81,102), while Italy has the second-highest with 31,506.

Ghana on Tuesday recorded its 7th coronavirus case and the Ghana Health Service is expected to brief the nation on that.

Currently, all outdoor events including funerals, church activities and naming ceremonies have been suspended.

Schools have also been asked to close down for a period of 4 weeks.

These, according to Akufo-Addo, forms part of precautionary measures to fight the virus and prevent any more spread after the 7 confirmed cases in Ghana.
