The Ghana Medical Association has said that, if the government fails to adhere to their advice by placing ban on social gatherings and things get out of hand, they will lay down their tools. That is the caution of the GMA to the government in the wake of rising COVID-19 figures, and, calls for a lockdown to be reactivated.
The General Secretary of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA), Dr. Justice Yankson, speaking on Citi TV’s The Big Issue, monitored by TRUSTNEWS, said that it continues to reiterate its call on the government to place a ban on all public gatherings.
He said that with health facilities being inundated by cases and little or no spaces for new patients becoming a trend, the pressure is mounting on them as health practitioners to begin to push measures that would curb the rise of the cases in the country.
One of these, he added, is for the government to work with its advice, to restrict public activities in the country, as a measure to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
He stressed that while it should be easy for them to lay down their tools if their concerns are sidestepped, it will however not make sense especially during such a pandemic hence, their hope that the government does what is needed before it is too late.
