The Ghana Medical Association(GMA) on Tuesday said that at least 13 doctors are infected with virus (covid-19) and were tested positive in Ghana.

The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the GMA, Paa Baidoo, made the announcement to the media in Accra, Ghana.

Paa Baidoo blamed the government for lack of necessary health equipment in the country.

He said “The virus affects virtually everybody, with no respect for the rich, poor, educated, or non-educated, including our healthcare professionals; nurses, pharmacists, and administrators.

”Medical professionals face an all-time high challenge of inadequate PPE due to an improper mode of distribution.”

According to him, this has endangered the lives of healthcare workers.

NAN reports that as of Tuesday, the Ashanti region had 69 cases, the second-highest number of people infected in a region by COVID-19 in the country.
