KIU, Western Campus – Three COVID-19 suspects who had been isolated at KIU Teaching Hospital have been found negative and discharged, the Executive Director of the Hospital Prof. Robinson Ssebuufu has revealed.
“We had 3 cases in isolation and all of them have been discharged after we found them to be negative,” Prof Ssebuufu said.
He also revealed that the Hospital was planning on following up COVID-19 suspects from home as a result of the new modus operandi adopted by the Ministry of Health of self or home care.
“People who are suspected of having COVID-19 will have to remain home and self-isolate so that we can take their samples from there instead of admitting them and they await their results from home,” he said.
“We shall only admit very sick patients but positive people who do not show symptoms can stay at home until they recover,” he added.
He also warned the public to be very vigilant because they faced a higher risk of contracting the virus from the communities, urging them to adhere to the Ministry of Health SOPs at all times
