As part of efforts to support the eradication of COVID -19 pandemic, the Faith Alive Chapel International has donated assorted items including Personal, Protective Equipment (PPEs) to the Essikado Hospital in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.

The PPEs include, nose masks, medical examination gloves and surgical gloves. The other items are hand sanitizers, Veronica buckets, liquid soap, yazz tissue, detergents, parazone, Jumbo-tissues, medium-size buckets, Sachet water, and cleaning powder among others.

Making the presentation, The General Overseer of Faith Alive Chapel International, Reverend Bob Asare thanked the health workers at the Hospital for their sacrifices in such trying times of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, which had plagued the entire globe in fear.

Rev Asare said the donation was in fulfilment of scripture, “as the Lord and Master Jesus Christ was always healing the sick and helping the needy”.

He asked Ghanaians to apply wisdom in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic by using the PPEs religiously.

He asked Christian communities in the country to adhere strictly to the President’s directives to stay home and halt church meetings to break the spread of COVID-19.

Receiving the PPEs on behalf of the Hospital, the Deputy Director of Nursing Services at the Hospital, Madam Matilda Musah, said the items had come at an opportune time as the Hospital was in dire need of the PPEs.

She, however, lamented that the PPEs were hard to come by and the prices kept sky-rocketing.

She, therefore, appealed to the public to assist the Hospital with PPEs so that they would be able to contain the spread of the COVID 19 pandemic.

Speaking to the GNA earlier in an interview, the Deputy Administrator at the Hospital, Madam Eunice Nartey, said the Hospital admitted two locals with suspected cases of COVID-19, but they later tested negative.

Madam Nartey said the Hospital has a holding Room to quarantine patients of COVID-19 in case anyone reported with symptoms.
