Coronavirus: Nurses Association warns members to protect themselves

Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives’ Association has advised its members to be alert in the wake of the confirmed coronavirus cases in Ghana.

The Association is also urging its members who are providing healthcare in the isolated facilities to remove themselves if the needed protective equipment are not provided to them.

In a statement, the association urged its members to remain calm as they work with the relevant stakeholders in the wake of the outbreak.

Ghana has so far confirmed two cases of the deadly virus. One of the infected persons is a Norwegian diplomat in Ghana, while the other is a Ghanaian who returned from Turkey. Both individuals have been in the country for about a week before detection

“Both individuals returned to Ghana from Norway and Turkey. So these are imported cases of COVID -19 Both patients are currently being kept in isolation and are stable. We have initiated processes for contact tracing.

“I wish to assure all Ghanaians that the Government of Ghana together with all Health Partners will continue to work assiduously to ensure the situation is contained. We wish to encourage every Ghanaian to take care of their health and that of their families adhering to the following precautionary measures,” the Health minister said.
