News information coming in and at the disposal of ghdispatch.com has revealed that 6 workers of a mortuary are said to have died from the deadly coronavirus whiles doing their jobs has raised a lot of fears amongst people.
General Secretary for Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana (MOWAG), Richard Kofi Jordan during an interview stated that the death of the six people was said to have happened within a month stating the dates as being from December 2020 and January 20, 2021.
Richard Jordan who was on the “Asem Beba Dabi’ show hosted by Akosua Agyeiwaa Kodie on Otec FM revealed that the 6 workers contracted the virus and died due to the unavailability of the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)which the mortuary workers needed in other to protect themselves.
He stated saying; “Six people have mysteriously died within one month which I suspect to have caused by the coronavirus because we don’t have any protective gears in our lines of duties. The situation is scaring most workers from going to work
The Health authorities don’t think about the welfare of us because we have complained far too long about the unavailability of PPEs, but they haven’t solved our problem”
He further went ahead to reveal that they would be going on strike soon if care and attention is not given to them as they are getting scared of dying and leaving their families behind.
Very soon we will lay down our tools for the Health authorities to handle the dead bodies, and this time, no amount of words can convince us to come back. We are also human beings
