Coronavirus: Govt has set up hidden quarantine centers – Health Minister explains preparedness

The government has once again assured Ghanaians of the country’s preparedness to handle any outbreak of coronavirus that has killed over 3,200 globally.

In a stakeholder engagement on Wednesday, Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu, announced that the government has set up a number of hidden quarantine centres to help control the spread of the virus.

He, however, declined to disclose the said locations, explaining that it could cause fear and public.

Mr Agyemang Manu said that “people were likely to over-react if they were to find out that they now lived close to a detention centre.”

He added that Ghana has set up treatment centres at Tema and other regional hospitals.

The sector Minister also said that a health emergency control team has been set up, adding that the team would regularly update the President on happenings.

The Minister announced district health directorates were equally on a high alert.

In clearing doubts about travel fears, the Health Minister said, “currently there are no direct flights from China to Accra.”

“Flights from China transit through Dubai, South Africa or Ethiopia are on hold for now,” he stressed.

The dedicated communication lines put in place to enable the public to report suspected cases of Covid-19 are 0552222004, 0552222005, 05094977100, 0558439868 and 0800110555.

Alternatively, the Minister said, text messages can be sent to the shortcode 199.
