A source close to the Ashaiman police station has disclosed to Joy News that 10 inmates there have tested positive for Covid-19.

The commander in charge of the station, the source said, only got to know after random tests were conducted by health officials two weeks ago.

So far, out of the 54 samples taken 10 persons are said to have tested positive and have been isolated. The police officers there are yet to go into self isolation as they await the result of their test.

The inmates have since been transferred to an isolation centre until further notice.

Joy News learned officers at the station have been duly informed and directed to adhere strictly to the WHO protocols of constant hand washing and social distancing.
