The Bank of Ghana has clarified that its hospital being availed to Government for the Covid-19 fight will serve all Ghanaians and not VIPs.

A statement by the Bank said, “it has been in discussions with the Ministry of Health to agree on an arrangement to avail parts of the facility, to assist in the treatment of severe and critical cases of COVID-19”.
This arrangement, the statement said, will be available for the benefit of the general public.
The Bank assured the public of its support of the national effort towards the management of the COVID-19 pandemic.
