The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) wants people who failed to comply with the COVID-19 security protocol during parliamentary primaries organized by the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

GMA also wants the Executive Director of the National Identification Authority (NIA) to be held accountable for violating security protocols in the ongoing distribution of the Ghana Card.

According to the group, these actions can increase the number of COVID-19 infections in the country and therefore the necessary actions should be taken against those responsible.

The association said in a press release that this problem was revealed after its National Executive Council (NEC) had examined and discussed the country’s response to the COVID pandemic.

“Indeed, those identified who are involved in throwing all the necessary precautions by the Ghana Health Service and theĀ  government as a whole to the dog must be arrested and prosecuted by the police according to legal requirements.”

The GMA also raised concerns about the inadequacy of basic medical supply needed to treat coronavirus cases in the country.

Another issue of concern to the group was the increase in daily reported cases of the virus.

In the eight-point problem identified by the group, includes lack of drugs, low supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) and delays in the publication of test results.

GMA, therefore, demands that “the shortage of drugs needed for the treatment of the case be addressed immediately”.

It also called for austerity measures to reduce the increase in cases because of the high prevalence of society.

Ghana has currently registered 17,741 cases of coronavirus as of Tuesday, 30 June 2020.

The total number of recoveries and deaths were 13,268 and 112, respectively.
