The Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Lieutenant General Obed Boamah says he is impressed with the progress of work on the infectious disease isolation and treatment centre at the Ga East Hospital in Accra.
Work on the project, which is being sponsored by the Ghana Covid-19 Private Sector Fund started two weeks ago with the Ghana Army providing engineering, logistical and security support, among others.
The facility which is being hastened China-styled is expected to be completed and fully equipped by the close of May 2020.
The facility is being funded by the Ghana COVID-19 Private Sector Fund as their contribution towards the fight against Covid-19.
“We will like to express our appreciation to them for making us a part of this an important project,” Lt. Gen. Boamah said, adding that the project “is receiving very good attention at the highest level and we are looking forward to the completion date.”
Managing Trustee of the Ghana Covid-19 Private Sector Fund, Senyo Hosi, expressed gratitude to the Armed Forces for its support for the project. “Your team has been the driving force to the success we’ve had so far,” Mr. Hosi told the CDS. “The discipline has been reflected in the project so far.”
