Authenticity Is Our Hallmark

Medical Team at Begoro in the Fanteakwa North Municipality of the
Eastern Region is finding it difficult to get accommodations to
quarantine dozens of nurses and patients who came to contact with
COVID-19 positive cases.

Mybrytfmonline.con
has gathered there are high apprehensions among residents resisting the medical
team from bringing the health workers and patients to their communities to be
quarantined.

There
was near pandemonium on Tuesday when residents living around Begoro
Presbyterian Senior High School violently resisted the medical team.

sources say some of the angry residents pulled cutlasses, sticks to attack the
medical team while others nearly set ablaze cars of a Chief in the community.

On
April 5, 2020, as a 65-year-old man was admitted at the male ward of the
Hospital on the reported case of query tuberculosis but on the next day, he
developed dyspnea and fever of about 40 degrees Celsius which management became
suspicious hence took his sample to Noguchi which he tested positive.

About
58 exposed Staff of the hospital who had contact with the patient are to be
quarantined.

The
male ward has since been closed for fumigation while patients who were on
admission with him have all been listed to be quarantined for observation and
testing.

Since
the information broke out, there is anxiety in the district creating high
stigmatization against health workers at the facility.
