A Ghanaian health worker who lives in the United States of America (USA) has made a video seriously warning everyone to stay away from hospitals in these times.

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Facts and Truths, the woman explained that hospitals, these days have become breeding places of the novel coronavirus.

According to her, the only condition under which someone could visit the hospital is if they suffer heart attack, a terrible stroke, have an extreme difficulty in breathing, or any other sensitive emergency situation.

Although she did not mention her exact location, the lady indicated that several doctors and other medical professionals in her unit are in a bad condition after getting infected with COVID-19.

She revealed that many of the health workers who have been infected did not take the disease very seriously when news about it first broke in the area and were not wearing the right Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs).

In conclusion, the Ghanaian health worker further warned that Ghanaians should not take COVID-19 as a joke at all, as it can easily cause immense damage when taken for granted. "If you need to see a doctor, call him," she added.

In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Facts and Truths, the gentleman opened three different taps and had two buckets overflowing, while a wash sink was just flowing away.

Luckily for him, the man who perpetrated the act did not show his face or reveal his voice by speaking but that did not stop him from being heavily attacked by Ghanaians on social media.
