Coronavirus positive Guinean flees isolation center in Tamale

One of the eight Guineans who tested positive for coronavirus in the Northern region has escaped from the isolation center.

According to the Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed, the patient, a woman in her early 20s, scaled over a wall in a guest house in Tamale, leaving behind her belongings.

The incident happened on Monday.

Mr. Saeed described it as “a very disturbing situation because she is positive.”

“Since yesterday, up till this morning, I have not slept, with my security people. I directed that they should use all their networks to be able to track the person down and get her,” Mr. Saeed told the media.

The guest house which served as the isolation center for the infected persons had two police officers and two soldiers guarding the facility.

The minister has, however, urged residents within the municipality to remain calm as efforts are underway to trace her.

“Our people are safe… we are working very hard to ensure that the people don’t get too panicked. Nobody should be afraid because the security personnel are on top of the issues,” he said.
