The United States of America Embassy and the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) have jointly deployed a state-of–the-art Level II Field (mobile) Hospital in an effort to combat COVID-19 in the country.
The donation was made through the U.S. Government’s Africa Peacekeeping Rapid Response Partnership (APRRP) Programme.
A statement issued and signed by the Public Relations Directorate of the GAF said the mobile hospital would operate in the Greater Accra area as part of the Government of Ghana’s COVID-19 response.
Ambassador Stephanie O. Sullivan underscored the importance of joint efforts to combat the pandemic, “Now more than ever, the United States is pleased to work together with the government, armed forces, and people of Ghana.”
According to her, the hospital would directly serve those most in need.
“I also echo President Akufo-Addo’s call for all Ghanaians and residents of Ghana to stay home as much as possible at this time, as one of the most effective ways to combat the pandemic and ‘flatten the curve,” she said.
