A Covid-19 patient, Seyram Avotri, who has been sent to the Pentecost Isolation Centre in Gomoa Fete in the Central Region, has said they are made to exercise regularly on the corridors and staircase at the centre.
A mental health nurse at the Accra Psychiatric Hospital, Seyram Avotri said they are only allowed to have access to the corridors and the staircase within the center but not the streets.
He recounted on Sunrise on 3FM Friday, May 15 that the first day they arrived at the Centre, they were given materials to work.
“We also exercise regularly, we use the staircase and the inner corridors to exercise. They don’t allow us to have access to the streets.”
As a psychiatric nurse, he said: “I was ready and prepared in my mind, I was ready for anything. Most of the people in there are in self-denial because they are asymptomatic, they ask why at all they are here because they are not sick, they are healthy strong but left their jobs being here.”
Explaining how he broke the news to his family especially mother, he narrated how he had to prepare her mind before giving her the news.
“It is like anytime you get Covid-19, you are going to die which is not true so I prepared the mind of my mother before telling her.”
Meanwhile, his wife and children all tested negative.
He said the food they were given initially were not suitable but after complaints, officials improved on the meals.
“At the initial stage, the food we were given weren’t good but as we complained it improved. We got served three times a day.
“We wash our own cloths here, they give us soap and water.”
