In an interview with Hello FM in Kumasi, Dr. Baidoo revealed that about 13 doctors have been infected with the virus in Ghana so far.

“About 13 doctors have been infected on the job as of Wednesday [April 22, 2020]. We shouldn’t joke with this virus. Some people think it’s a joke or because Ghanaians are not dying we have some favour. The two weeks lockdown helped us trace contacts and most of the people are in the younger age group. Of 100 infected people in the country, 8 or 10 are in critical condition,” he stated.

Well, it is no surprise to know this. The virus has infected several health workers across the globe with some countries like Italy recording some deaths.
