CID takes over "contaminated blood" claim


The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) in the Ashanti Region has taken over investigations into the issuance of an alleged contaminated blood to a patient by the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).

Addo-Kwabla Evans in a Facebook post, accused the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital of selling two units of  HIV-Syphilis infested blood to his mum.

It follows an initial screening of the blood units by the Kean Health Center, a private medical center in Kumasi.

But the hospital has downplayed the report, saying blood from its bank are safe.

The management of the facility subsequently announced the setting up of a committee to investigate the alleged issue.

“The Chief Executive wishes to state that, KATH has a track record of stringent blood testing protocols and maintains the highest standard for blood safety,” the Public Relations Officer wrote in a statement Saturday.

According to reports, the blood was determined to be unfit when it was tested at the private clinic the prospective recipient was being treated.

The investigative committee according to the statement will comprise of representatives from the Ghana Police Service, the Food and Drugs Authority, the National AIDS control programme and the National Public Health Reference Lab.

The patient and the family has been asked to release the blood in question to the investigation team.
