Government has set up an Intensive Care Unit at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) to handle complicated COVID-19 cases.

The 16-bed-capacity will be used to treat COVID-19 patients with respiratory problems.

The Deputy Minister for Health, Alexander Abban made this known in an interview with Citi News.

“This facility has been prepared and we are ready in the event that somebody requires to be brought to the ICU. These things are in place. Usually, those who require ICU care are those who are not able to breathe on their own and so you require ICU care and ventilators to help in the breathing of the person because at that time the virus may have taken the respiratory system and that is where you will require an ICU.”
