The Hohoe Municipal Hospital in the Volta region has called for support in the fight against the spread of the novel coronavirus disease.

The Hospital is said to be in need of material resources and finance to organise its treatment centre and asked churches, corporate bodies, shops and traders to support it to get the treatment places ready.

A public safety announcement from the Hohoe Municipal Hospital and Hohoe Health Directorate has tasked all individuals returning from Accra, Tema, Obuasi and Kumasi to mandatorily quarantine themselves for two weeks.

The Hospital asked families in Hohoe to help in enforcing the directive adding that any traveller that would develop any symptoms of the virus; coughing, sneezing, fever, sore throat to call the hospital helpline for necessary actions.

Drivers and station masters from areas of confirmed cases were also asked to take names, contact numbers and traceable addresses of all passengers boarding their vehicles to help the Hospital in easy contact tracing.

The Hohoe Municipal Environmental Health and Sanitation Unit also called on all families to find separate rooms for relations returning from other regions for a period of 14 days while maintaining a strict social distance rule.
