COVID-19 cases in Ghana now 1154 as 120 recover

COVID-19 cases in Ghana have hit 1154, Dr Patrick Aboagye, Director General of the Ghana Health Service has announced.

Addressing a press conference Wednesday, Dr Aboagye said out of 1154, a total of 120 people have fully recovered while four persons are in critical condition with one on a ventilator.

According to him, over 1000 people are currently responding to treatment with majority of them being managed at home.

Regions that have reported cases are Greater Accra, Ashanti, Eastern, Northern, Volta, Upper East, Upper West, Central, Western and North East.

Meanwhile, medical staff at the Maamobi General Hospital are angry at their supervisor for selling Personal Protective Equipment to them.

Health workers at the facility can only access the PPE after paying 5 cedis in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The facility has recorded COVID-19 cases with some health workers falling victims as well.

Speaking to Starr News, a midwife at the hospital disclosed that the supervisor has procured the PPE following lack of supply from the Central government which is being sold to the staff.

The workers want the internally generated funds to rather be used in providing the PPE at no fee to them.

“I cannot imagine a whole medical supervisor at the hospital selling us PPEs…she is selling to us at 5 cedis. We expected that even if she has taken from somewhere she can give to us and take it from the IGF.

“The work I am doing is for the government and myself and so why would I buy my own PPE to work,” a midwife at the hospital told Starr News.
