Thieves have broken into the Wa Municipal COVID-19 Isolation Center in the Upper West Region, making away with a mattress and a 32-inch television set.
Confirming the incident to Citi News, The Upper West Regional Health Promotion Officer, John Makpeh said that the unfortunate incident was reported to him by the municipal health promotion officer.
“Saturday, we were there with another team that came on monitoring with the World Health Organisation to monitor the facilities that we are using to house the COVID-19 patients in the region. We took them there and upon getting there, I realized that thieves had broken into the facility.” He said.
The Wa Municipal COVID-19 center was constructed by ActionAid Ghana, an NGO, and handed over to the Ghana Health Service about two months ago as a support in the fight against the pandemic.
