Three children have been reported dead following an outbreak of a deadly bacterial infection called Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococus Aureus (MRSA) at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Ghana’s premier health facility.
The outbreak has necessitated the temporal closure of the Children’s Emergency Ward to prevent further infections.
The Public Health Physician Specialist at the Hospital, Dr. Philip Amoh, in an interview with Citi News said the hospital is doing its possible best to contain the disease.
Meanwhile, authorities at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital say they are not sure when the Department of Child Health will be reopened to the general public.
The block was closed down on Friday following the outbreak of the deadly bacterial infection MRSA, which has claimed three lives.
