Health personnel at the Korle Bu Police Station registration center have identified some persons suspected to have the Coronavirus after they showed up to register.
According to a health official stationed at the center, Rabiatu Braimah, these persons had cough, high temperatures and flu.
Their temperatures recorded as high as 39.6 degrees Celsius which was beyond the normal 37.5 degrees the health personnel were looking out for.
“Not just the temperature, these are people who are giving us symptoms of cough, cold [Flu] and some are trying to be smart about it, but once you persist, they tell you they have had a cough for about a week,” Rabiatu said.
She noted that these suspected cases are isolated from everyone and then rechecked again.
“There are people we go back to check and you realize the temperature goes back to normal. Others, it rather keeps escalating,” she said. “We don’t really put up any attitude to make them feel discriminated against. We try to explain and they have been very cooperative,” she said.
She added, “for persons whose temperatures do not drop, they call for “reinforcement” without specifying if they are tested for the virus.
