In the wake of the rise in Ghana’s cases, there have been discussions on social media on why the country appears to be losing the battle against the virus.
Replying to a comment by one of her followers, Nana Aba Anamoah in a post claimed that some health professionals charge GH¢500 to change results of tests from positive to negative.
“Sister, some of our people are charging 500 cedis to change a positive result to negative,” she posted on Twitter.
She also accused the Ghana Health Service and Ghana Medical Association of bowing to pressure from the political class during the campaigning period.
She added that claims by the government that the political activities cannot be blamed for the upsurge in cases have been laughed off by practitioners she has interacted with.
“During the campaigning season, Ghana Health Service, Ghana Medical Association, etc. pandered to the whims of politicians and remembered medicine & science only after elections.”
