David Tenkorang-Tum, who spoke at a media house on Friday monitored by straightnewsonline, added that several nurses and midwives are infected and currently being quarantined.

He described the situation as worrisome because health workers were the most important human resource helping the country fight the virus.

According to Tenkorang-Twum, the increase in infections among health professionals may be caused by ineffective contact tracing.

He explained that people report the disease to various hospitals because contact tracing is not done thoroughly, which exposes and infects health workers and other patients in the hospital.

“The numbers keep increasing and we are not surprised because they [the authorities] don’t listen to us, but until we change the story or the way we treat patients, many nurses, doctors, and other caregivers will become infected.

“Because people are treated on the ward as a normal case, but before you sayl Jack, it will be COVID,” he said.
