The Medical Superintendent at the Obuasi Government Hospital, Dr. Kwadwo Nyarko Jectey has disclosed that Obuasi have been able to control the spread of the Coronavirus moving it from being a Covid-19 hotspot zone.
This comes after the enforcement of series of measures by the Ashanti Regional Health Directorate, Ghana Health Service, Municipal Chief Executive and Health Workers in the Municipality.
The influx of Covid-19 made the Obuasi area a hotspot zone after several cases were recorded in the municipality.
However, speaking to Pure FM’s Osei Kwadwo, Dr. Nyarko Jectey said health workers have been able to improve the situation in the area and curbed the rapid spread of the virus.
“Obuasi became a hotspot of Covid-19 in Ashanti Region but now the situation is different. Though we are not out of the woods yet there is a massive improvement when it comes to the fight against Covid-19 in Obuasi. We didn’t start it well but we are ending it well,” Dr. Nyarko Jectey said.
He added, “when it comes to the enforcement of Covid-19, Obuasi Municipal Commander is doing very well to enforce all the protocols. The support from Obuasi Police Command is making the work of the assembly and health workers easy. Ghanaians especially those in Obuasi should adhere to Covid-19 protocols.”
