I spent a lot of time working in COVID treatment facilities in Accra in 2020. I was on assignment for the World Bank Group, documenting Ghana’s preparedness for and management of the pandemic.
I was granted rare access to Dr Joseph Oliver-Commey & his team at work.Dr Oliver-Commey is the Physician-In-Charge of the COVID-19 Team at Ga-East Municipal Hospital.
I spent about 10 hours at Ga-East. Believe me when I say, I was SO exhausted, mentally & physically! To think I was only observing & documenting! I cannot begin to imagine what it must be like for them constantly trying to keep people alive, all the while in various levels of PPE!
