Reports reaching your reliable news portal indicates that the volta region might be recording its first case of Covid19 as of about 4:30pm today.
The patient is currently in isolation at the epidemic unit in the Margret Marquart Catholic Hospital (MMCH) in Kpando.
The case was first identified at the Kpando Health Centre yesterday but the patient was unfortunately allowed to go back home. He was however tracked and has subsequently been brought to be isolated in MMCH this afternoon.
This arrangement has become necessary because the holding area in the health centre cannot be used to isolate the case for more than 24 hours. Patient could also not self isolate at home.
His samples have been taken and will be transported to Accra for testing tomorrow.
The results will be ready in the next 48 hours.
