“About thirteen doctors have been infected on the job as of Wednesday. We shouldn’t joke with this virus. Some people think its joke or because Ghanaians are not dying we have some favour. The two weeks lockdown helped us trace contacts and most of the people are in the younger age group. Of 100 infected people in the country, 8 or 10 are in critical condition,” he disclosed.

The doctor further disclosed that out of every 100 Coronavirus patients in the country 8 or 10 are in critical condition. He believes that Ghanaian don’t care because they think people aren’t dying in here as compared to Europe and the US.

“When they come we give them critical care. The efficacy of the virus depends on a persons immune systems. The few people who have died had other conditions but it doesn’t mean if you are young and have not conditions you won’t die,” he added.
