Mr David Tengkorang-Twum speaking with Joynews’ Emefa Apawu explained that this new increase in infections among health workers is proof that the third wave is having a catastrophic effect on the health care system and its providers.

However, Head of Infectious Diseases at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital has attributed the increase in infection among health care professionals to fatigue.

Dr Peter Puplampu hinted that due to the lack of break for health care professionals since Covid-19 broke, many of them easily let down their guard when they are tired.
