Some Nurses and Doctors of some hospitals in Ghana’s capital, Accra are scared of a possible cholera outbreak as several hospitals begin to record cases of the diarrhoeal disease.

Last year some hospitals in the metropolis created isolation centres to handle cholera cases after an outbreak killed about two hundred people.

But similar makeshift facilities are not yet in place as some hospitals begin recording new cases.

The situation has raised fears of another cholera epidemic.

An anonymous staff of the LEKMA hospital at Teshie told Starr News that with the rains about to start, the hospital fears it might be unable to control another outbreak since there is no isolation centre to house patients.

“Last year we had to let the patients be in the emergency ward which is close to the OPD even though they have to be kept in isolation. We started this building [for them] but the MCE came in and since June [last year] they haven’t done anything about it.

“With the rains coming, we are afraid that the cholera would come...and because it is very infectious we want the isolation ward built quickly”.
