Coronavirus: Mamprobi Polyclinic Nurses Are Using Tissue Paper For Protection Amid Face Mask Shortage

The Coronavirus pandemic keeps getting worse each day in Ghana. The government has put in place various measures to aid in stabilizing the crisis in the country. However, it looks like the government’s interventions are not enough as more needs to be done to curtail the pandemic.

Some hospitals in Ghana lack the basic preventive materials and kits that are required to aid health professionals in carrying out their duties efficiently in such a time.

A nurse of the Mamprobi Polyclinic took to Twitter to share the situation that the health facility is facing in terms of logistics.

According to the nurse, the Polyclinic is experiencing a shortage of face masks.

Amid the shortage of face masks, employees of the Mamprobi Polyclinic are using tissue paper and rubber bands as alternatives to protect themselves.

The nurse who tweeted about this called on the government, philanthropists and NGOs to come to their aid.

“This is the situation at Mamprobi Polyclinic-OPD and Emergency Unit. Due to shortage of common face mask. We are not safe as nurses! We are calling on Gov’t, philanthropists, NGOs to come to our aid,” the concerned nurse wrote.
