His Excellency, President Nana Akufo-Addo has currently presented 10,000 hospital beds with his main aim geared towards its distribution to our health care sectors across the motherland. His Excellency disclosed that the beds would come in handy in the various hospitals giving the needed comfort to patients.
This is what the President had to say in breaking the news in regards to the beds;
On Tuesday, 22nd September 2020, I visited the Pantang COVID-19 Treatment Facility. This structure, which was initially intended to be a learning centre for the Ghana Health Service, was started under the Government of President J.A. Kufuor, but was abandoned soon after the NPP Government left office in 2008. Upon my assumption of office, it was adopted by the Electricity Company of Ghana, and has been transformed into a treatment centre for COVID-19. It is scheduled to be completed in three months.
I also presented 10,000 hospital beds, under Government’s Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP), to hospitals across the country, which have been warehoused in the premises of the Ghana Armed Forces.
