The head of the Public Health Department at Korle Bu Teaching Hospital has revealed that a lack of a well-resourced holding bay at the hospital caused pandemonium among doctors on Wednesday.

Dr Philip Amoo said there was a situation in which two suspected cases of coronavirus were reported at the facility and all the doctors fled.

Describing the situation at Ghana’s biggest referral hospital yesterday as ‘malicious panic,’ Dr Amoo said some doctors on duty even began to flee the health facility for fear of getting infected.

“Yesterday I saw something very funny,” he began narrating events that took place at the hospital to the host of Joy FM’s Super Morning Show, Daniel Dadzie, on Thursday.

“There is something we call malicious panic: panic that is not founded on anything. Just people [doctors] wanting to go home…it’s sad. This one will shout, ‘hey I have little children’…and disappear from the scene. That is the reason why as soon as the epidemic thing steps in into the environment, the case needed to be moved away quickly from routine sites,” he explained the actions by the doctors.

Coronavirus scare in Ghana

Ghana could be the second West African country after Ivory Coast to report a case of the fast-spreading coronavirus infection if two foreign nationals suspected of having the disease test positive for the infection.

The patients, a Chinese and an Argentine, on Wednesday reported at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after they developed some symptoms suspected to be coronavirus.

Health authorities say they two foreign nationals live together but travelled on different dates from China to Ghana. They had gone to test for Meningitis before they were quarantined for a suspected case of coronavirus.
