More than 2,000 medical workers in Ghana have been infected by Coronavirus since the outbreak began.
But why exactly is the country facing a shortage of masks, face shields, and suits?
Africa Eye went undercover to show how some staff in Ghana’s hospitals have been selling vital PPE for personal profit.
Two officials of the Greater of Accra Regional Hospital (Ridge Hospital), Thomas Osei and Divine Kumodzi were caught selling Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) which were meant for the frontline workers.
The two staff of the hospital were seen diverting the PPEs for their private again.
Africa Eye investigators successfully negotiate and seal a PPE purchasing deal worth $450 with Thomas Osei.
