GHS denies reports of ICU, testing facilities overwhelmed due to increase in COVID-19 cases


The Ghana Health Service has denied reports that the country’s intensive care units (ICU) and testing facilities are overstretched with the increase in COVID-19 cases.

The GHS said currently, there are 13 empty ICU beds at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital of Ridge and more than 20 ICU beds at the Ga East Hospital.

At a media briefing in Accra, the Director General of the Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, said the situation is under control and the government is hoping to expand both facilities with the surge in cases and a fear of the country suffering a third wave.
