On Tuesday, 22nd September 2020, prez. Akufo-Addo visited the Pantang COVID-19 Treatment Facility.
This structure, which was initially intended to be a learning centre for the Ghana Health Service, was started under the Government of President J.A. Kufuor, but was abandoned soon after the NPP Government left office in 2008.
Upon his assumption of office, it was adopted by the Electricity Company of Ghana, and has been transformed into a treatment centre for COVID-19. It is scheduled to be completed in three months.
He also presented 10,000 hospital beds, under Government’s Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP), to hospitals across the country, which have been warehoused in the premises of the Ghana Armed Forces.
