37 Hospital to bury 281 unclaimed bodies

The 37 Military Hospital on Thursday said it would carry out a mass burial of unidentified and unclaimed bodies at the hospital’s morgue to decongest it.

The bodies comprise 254 children aged between 12 days old and 27, adults between 14 – 67 years, which have been in the morgue since 2010.

A statement issued by Major E. N. Asamoah, Deputy Director Information and Press Relations, and copied to Ghana News Agency reminded families who have not claimed the remains of their relatives to do so within next 21 days to avoid the mass burial.
