Some quarantined staff of the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) who came into contact with 10 Covid-19 patients in Tamale have tested negative.

Public Relations officer of the TTH Mohammed Misbau who confirmed this to Joy News said they heaved a sigh of relief when they received the result yesterday.

Some 40 persons, including health workers at the Hospital, were quarantined after coming into contact with 10 Guinean Covid-19 patients in the Northern Regional capital.

Police officers who moved the foreigners from their hotel to the Hospital have also been identified and will be quarantined.

On Sunday, the Ghana Health Service confirmed 11 more cases of Covid-19 in the country.

Out of the 11 cases, 10 were Guinean citizens who had entered Tamale through Burkina Faso and Togo.

But unlike, the health workers who now know their status, the police officers who first came into contact with the patients are yet to be tested.

Speaking from their hotel room in Tamale one of the officers told Joy News their samples are yet to be taken and that is a worry to them.
