Some 33 unclaimed bodies have been been buried in by the Sunyani City authorities.
This mass burial was part of efforts to decongest the Sunyani Regional Hospital mortuary.
There has been a heap of bodies at several morgues in Ghana due to the ban on public gathering which is preventing many from holding public funeral sevices.
Even though private funerals with not more than 25 persons are allowed, many have still opted against holding funerals now and are waiting for the ban to be lifted.
The 33 unclaimed bodies include three children who have all been at the mortuary for a long period of time.
Health officials and Municipal Assembly members who engaged in the exercise wore protective equipment to prevent them from contracting any form of disease.
Sunyani East Municipal Chief Executive, Justina Owusu-Banahene speaking to Adom News, sais this exercise was necessary as the morgue was getting chocked.
The Police Hospital recently announced it will embark on a similar exercise.
President Akufo-Addo last Sunday extended the ban on public gathering for another two weeks.
Ghana’s COVID-19 cases as at April 26, 2020 was 1,550 with 150 recoveries and 11 deaths.
