President Nana Akufo-Addo will today visit the Kotoka International Airport, the Ridge Hospital and the Tema General Hospital to inspect work done so far in preparation of an outbreak of the deadly Covid-19 in Ghana.
It follows assurances from health officials that Ghana is prepared for any suspected or confirmed case of the virus.
The President’s tour will afford him the opportunity to interact with health officials and others assigned to fight the outbreak and spread of the virus in Ghana.
Following the outbreak, the Ministry of Health designated the Ridge Hospital and the Tema General Hospital as centres to manage possible cases in the country.
It said the move is part of Ghana’s plans to prevent and control any case that may be detected in the country and ultimately protect the Ghanaian population.
The Ministry has also enhanced the process by applying it to all international arrivals at Terminal 3 of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).
President Akufo-Addo has said he was unhappy with attempts by the Minority side in Parliament to introduce what he calls “ill-judged politics” into debates surrounding the coronavirus outbreak.
