We’re constructing Covid-19 labs in Paga and other borders – Kojo Oppong Nkrumah

Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has revealed that the construction of Covid-19 laboratories at Aflao, Elubu and Paga borders is ongoing.

He indicated that the various interventions have contributed to a generalized reduction in Covid cases but the pandemic is not over.

“We must keep our guard on,” he said after the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS) Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye addressed the press on Tuesday, April 26.

“More than 14 million COVID-19 vaccination doses administered. Reduced vaccination uptake with reasonable vaccine hesitancy,” the Ofoase Ayirebi lawmaker tweeted.

Also, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service Dr Kuma-Aboagye told the press that “There’s always vaccine wastage; it’s either it breaks … or storage is not optimum and so you discard them. But there is a percentage of 10%.

“The proportion that we have so far discarded is 4.4%. So we are way within the normal range of vaccine wastage that is acceptable. And that comes up to about one million doses.

“But if you look at the fact that some of the vaccines arrive two to three months to expiry it is expected that you will get some wastage along.”
