Gary Al-Smith Makes Shocking Revelation About Frontline Health Workers At UGMC



Joy Fm’s astute sports journalist, Gary Al-Smith, who recently declared publicly his positive COVID-19 status, has made a disturbing revelation about frontline health workers at the UGMC where he is currently been treated in isolation.

This revelation is the first of many as he promised last night to expose some lapses in Ghana’s case management system since his admission.

He wrote in part, “Frontline workers at the UGMC Intensive Care Unit have had their food arrangements cut because apparently there’s no money. A lot of us non-ICU patients feel very guilty having 3-square meals, while these heroes, who regularly work 12hr shifts, don’t have that privilege.

At least, there’s no breakfast, lunch, or supper for ICU frontline workers at UGMC. A memo was sent recently informing them.

You would recall that my colleague Israel Laryea had cause to make a public appeal for mattresses this week. That’s because he had been informed that the frontline workers are unable to get individual mattresses to sleep on between shifts. Israel’s call led to Ashfoam making a donation of 8 mattresses that same day.

Having 3-sq meals, while these heroes, who regularly work 12hr shifts, don’t have that privilege. What happens is that when they clock off, these volunteers and staff of the ICU now have to go and look for food, themselves”
