According to reports circulating online, Ghanaian health workers in Ghana may be forced to leave their duty posts due to lack of Personal Protection Equipment (PPEs) and other logistics to help their work against COVID-19.
This is according to the Director of Public Health at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr. Philip Amoo who spoke in an interview monitored by Ghanashowbiz.com.
In his words, he had this to say:
“We health workers are trained, we can handle anything. However the panic is not that the person is not aware, that’s the mistake even authorities do. They say don’t panic, have you trained them, are they aware? That is nonsense. The panic that comes, comes from a deep-seated feeling that the person doesn’t have the protection he/she needs”.
“If you see panic and people running away let nobody fault the health worker and the mere fact that they’re saying don’t panic, why are you panicking or trying to play on their intellectual; that you’re a health worker, you’re a trained personnel, why are you panicking, that’s a joke”, he added.
What do you make of this?
