Coronavirus: Ghana’s health workers need ‘greater protection’ – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has called for “greater protection” for all health workers as the majority of them are being hit by the Coronavirus.

In a Facebook post to mourn the passing of a Consultant Surgeon at The Trust Hospital, Dr. Richard Kisser, Mr. Mahama said: “We need to ensure greater protection for all our citizens especially the health workers, because, without them, the already struggling fight to contain the spread of COVID-19 will be a failure.”

Dr. Kisser died on Thursday, July 2, 2020, at the University of Ghana Medical Centre where he was receiving treatment for COV1D-19 complications.

Below is Mr. Mahama’s full post:

I have received the sad news of the passing of Dr. Richard Kisser, a Consultant Surgeon, many may have encountered at the Trust Hospital in Osu, Accra.

A few weeks earlier, we lost another great physician, Professor Plange-Rhule. The demise of Dr. Harry Owusu Boateng is still not lost on us.

My condolences to the Kisser family, the management and staff of the Trust Hospital, the Ghana Medical Association and to the many patients he was attending to.

On behalf of the National Democratic Congress, I also extend our sympathy to all others who have lost loved ones to COVID-19.

We need to ensure greater protection for all our citizens especially the health workers, because, without them, the already struggling fight to contain the spread of COVID-19 will be a failure.
