The leadership of Tarkwa Municipal Hospital, the hospital where a lot of the Appiatse Explosion victims were sent to, has disclosed that victims who are currently fit and can be discharged have decided not to go home because they don't have a better place to sleep.

A Physician Assistant, Mr. Chris Asher of the hospital told Ghana News Agency that, most of the victims at the hospital have got their houses in a bad state because of the huge explosion they faced three days ago.

“The challenge is that because their homes have been destroyed and they have nowhere to go, some of the patients who are due to be discharged still want to stay at the hospital.” Mr. Chris Asher told Ghana News Agency.

The leadership of the hospital has described the situation as a huge challenge because the more they stay there, the more they burden the facility and makes the facility overcrowded.

It was known that one of the inpatients have lost his life. The deceased who is a male had sustained serious injuries during the explosion and was receiving care and treatment at the Tarkwa Municipal Hospital. He lost his life on Friday afternoon when the facility was preparing to move him to a bigger facility to expedite his treatment.

His death brings the death toll of the victims to 14 currently. After some 13 people lost their lives during the explosion and some also died while at the hospital.

Mr. Asher made known that about 60 victims of the unfortunate incident are receiving treatment at the hospital and he added that some of them have experienced life-threatening injuries.
