Catholic hospital to perform COVID-19 testing, retreat centre used for patients

GUYANA 

The St Joseph Mercy Hospital is responding to the needs necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic by partnering with the Diocese of Georgetown to have the St Paul’s Retreat Centre serve as a medical annex.

The retreat centre, which is owned by the Diocese, has been rapidly converted into a medical facility with the capacity to provide COVID-19 testing as well as to isolate and treat positive COVID-19 cases. At present, the centre has 31 fully air-conditioned rooms, but that can be expanded to over 50, according to a Catholic Standard article.
