Authorities of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital have announced plans to undertake a mass burial of unknown and unclaimed bodies in its mortuary within the next two weeks.

In a statement signed by the Head of Public Relations, Mustapha Salifu, it said “the move is to de-congest the facility which is currently beyond its carrying capacity.”


This comes after a similar notice from the Police Hospital and complaints from various hospitals across the country over congested mortuaries due to the ban on public gathering amid the coronavirus pandemic.
