A COVID-19 patient at the Pentecost Conference Centre at Gomoa Fetteh has lamented the poor nutritional value of food served patients at the quarantine centre.

Speaking on GBC’s Current Affairs Programme “FOCUS” Seyram Avotri described the food served them as anaemic calling on authorities to assist in improving on the quality of food served.

He also complained of the unhygienic nature of some of the facilities where they are being kept.

Meanwhile, Deputy Minister of Health, Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye, has described the situation and observation by the COVID-19 patient at the Pentecost Conference Centre at Gomoa Fetteh as unfortunate.

Dr. Okoe Boye further explains why the Ghana Health Service announced that Ghana has peaked in its Covid-19 cases.

He said what the Ghana Health Service did was to look at all the samples taken and the corresponding results, per day. He said the spikes which were the day the Ghana Health Service recorded its highest results and what was recorded subsequently is what informed their decision.

The General Secretary of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, Rev. Emmanuel Barrigah, also questioned the basis for Police Protection in the installation of some Chiefs in Accra and the Eastern region at a time when the President’s directive on the ban on social gathering is still in force.

He said if such illegality can be perpetuated, then why can’t churches be made to fellowship.

Rev. Barrigah said the church fully supports and respects the President’s directives to save lives, but they should not be relaxed for others on any basis.

A member of the NDC Covid-19 team, Dr. Prosper Akanbong, said the increasing number of positive cases of coronavirus is worrisome despite the restrictions and the protocols spelt out by the President.

He said with the extension on the ban on social gathering government must ensure that the number of positive cases is reduced.

Dr.  Akanbong said the increase in the number of Community spread is indicative that people are not adhering to the protocols.
