Gary Al-Smith, a renowned Ghanaian sports journalist who tested positive for COVID-19 has outlined insider-details concerning how Ghana is handling the pandemic.
The popular journalist who works with Multimedia gave the full account of how 'messed up' the COVID-19 management in Ghana is, in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on his Facebook handle.
Gary's write-up captured four key areas in which Ghana has gotten completely misconstrued with regards to the handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
See post below:
The first two points Gary raised concern the fact that frontline health workers are not well taken care of as they are not provided with breakfast, lunch and supper.
A lot of us non-ICU patients feel very guilty having 3-square meals, while these heroes, who regularly work 12hr shifts, don't have that privilege," Gary who is at the University of Ghana Medical Center said.
Furthermore, Gary explained that the frontline workers are unable to get individual mattresses to sleep on between shifts, and also added that the saddest part of the whole issue is the COVID-19 cases in Ghana keep increasing and more is required of the health workers.
In another report by YEN.com.gh, a young man identified as MP Emmanuel who looks like Nana Appiah Mensah, the CEO of Menzgold and Zylofon Music, was attacked by a group of Menzgold customers.
Emmanuel narrated the entire incident in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on his personal Facebook handle.
