|Coronavirus: Nigeria, Madagascar, Others Receive Supplies For Testing by Honbright(m): 9:37pm On Feb 07, 2020|
Nigeria, Ghana, Madagascar and Sierra Leone received the supplies for testing just this week
Medical teams from 15 African nations are convening in Dakar, Senegal, on Thursday for an emergency workshop on the first layer of preparedness for the virus.
WHO officials have said 24 countries, encompassing most of Africa’s population, will receive the material needed to conduct the tests by the end of the week.
Meanwhile, two suspected cases of the novel coronavirus in Ghana have tested negative at the Noguchi Memorial Institute, according to the Chief Executive Officer of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr. Daniel Asare.
The Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital on Wednesday isolated two foreign nationals; a Chinese and an Argentine for showing symptoms associated with the coronavirus, which has already claimed over 500 lives and infected more than 25,000 people in other parts of the world.
Addressing the media, Chief Executive Officer of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr. Daniel Asare said:
“The preliminary confirmation was negative and the next one that came, which is the actual confirmation, shows that they are negative.”
“Ghana is safe, Korle-Bu is safe, tourists coming in are safe,” he added.
Africa’s first suspected case of the novel coronavirus in Africa emerged last month in the Ivory Coast.
That case also came back negative.
Ghana is one of only six countries in Africa with testing capabilities for the novel coronavirus.
