Published on

According to an internal memo from the Directorate of Anaesthesia and Intensive Care at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), it has been revealed that most of the nurses and doctors at the Intensive Care Unit have been exposed to the virus. This was because of a Polytrauma patient on admission at the unit who tested positive for the virus.
