Some relatives of persons who died of Covid-19 say they were left stranded at the morgue following a decision by AMA burial team to boycott the exercise. At least two families at the Ridge Hospital in Accra agitated for over two hours.

A representative of one of the families told the burial of their dead relatives was scheduled for 9:00 am but as of 11: 00 am they had not heard from the AMA burial team.
