Thirteen medical doctors have been infected with the deadly Coronavirus in Ghana.
This was disclosed by the Ashanti Regional Chapter President of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Dr. Paa Kwasi Baidoo.
He said 13 doctors in the country tested positive for the virus, saying that one of the doctors was in a very critical condition but that with the hard work of his colleagues, he is better and responding to treatment.
According to him, they contracted the disease whiles attending to coronavirus victims.
Baidoo decried the sad situation in Ghana where people were not taking the virus very seriously.
He added Covid-19 is no joke and that people should take it seriously.
Baidoo revealed that a senior medical doctor in Ghana has been infected with the deadly virus and that anyone could easily fall for it.
He said: “a senior medical doctor in this country, sadly, has become a casualty of the deadly virus already, yet some people are behaving as if they don’t fear the virus.”
According to GHPAGE, Baidoo called on Ghanaians to adhere to the social distancing protocol and avoid unnecessary movements so the number of infected people would remain low.
