GHS Probes Increasing Infections Among Health Workers

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) says it is evaluating why more health workers are testing positive for COVID-19 in the country. Health workers have consistently complained about inadequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) which heightens their risk of infections in their line of duty. Last week, for instance, the Western Region reportedly had 43 health workers testing positive; while the Eastern and Ashanti Regions have recorded 15 and 30 cases respectively. The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, says although the health workers are categorized as being at high risk, it is possible some may have contracted the disease within their communities. “Apart from being at high risk of being infected at work, health workers are also part of our community so they could also pick it up just like any other person so we are evaluating all that. We have an insurance package for those that are infected so it is important that we track them. So we are doing f..
