The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has warned health workers in the Eastern region to desist from talking to the media in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

A statement signed by the Eastern regional directorate of the GHS said: “I write to you in uncertain terms to warn all staff in all seriousness to desist from engaging the media in conversations and discussions on covid-19 other than education”.

It continued that "anyone found to have given information to the media on covid-19 without the express permission of the regional health directorate will have his or herself to blame”.

The directive comes in the wake of calls by various health workers for government to supply them with PPEs.

Some nurses at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital days ago threatened to abandon their posts over lack of PPEs.
