Police hospital to bury 200 unclaimed bodies

The Ghana Police Hospital has served notice that it will mass-bury about 200 unidentified and unclaimed bodies as part of routine procedures to decongest the mortuary.

These unidentified and unclaimed bodies, according to the Police Hospital, are made up of mostly paupers, unknown former patients, abandoned patients, unidentified accident and crime victims.

The public has been urged to contact the pathology department of the hospital for identification of the persons who might have not been seen for some time as part of the search.

This, according to the police, is to avert a situation whereby such bodies are added to those earmarked for the mass burial.

The police has also encouraged the public to acquire the habit of having their national identification cards or that of any organisation on them to help the law enforcment body and others easily identify them whenever they are in any health crisis or involved in an accident.
