Authorities at the Ridge Hospital say sixteen out of the twenty patients brought to their outfit following the Wednesday, June 3, flood and inferno disaster have been discharged.

According to Dr. L. A. Obeng, Medical Director at Ridge Hospital, “no death has been recorded among the victims that were brought to the hospital.” The remaining four patients are still on admission and responding to treatment.

Over 200 people are reported dead while properties running into millions of cedis have been destroyed by the torrential rains that fell for over three hours.

Some people who had gathered in front of a Pharmacy Shop at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle near the Goil Filling Station adjacent to the GBC Towers to seek for refuge from the heavy downpour unfortunately lost their lives following a fire outbreak at the Goil filling station.

Meanwhile, the Agricultural Development Bank Ghana Limited (adb) has made a cheque donation of GH₵50,000 apiece to the Ridge and 37 Military Hospitals to help deliver medical care to victims of the Wednesday floods and inferno disaster.
