Ghat Municipality has concluded a workshop on Covid-19 response, under the supervision of the emergency department of the Ministry of Health.

The three-day workshop was intended for medical staff and healthcare workers at Ghat's General Hospital and health centers in the municipality.

Those who took part, learned about basic hygiene measures and how to protect oneself against infection, including the correct way to use personal protective equipment (PPE).

The course also provided information and guidance on health centre management and what measures should be taken inside these facilities to be prepared to respond to Covid-19 cases, as well as how to manage suspected or confirmed cases of coronavirus.

Ghat reported Sunday the first coronavirus case, despite its location in the southern region where the highest numbers of Covid-19 infection were recorded.
