President Nana Addo in his 8th National address on coronavirus revealed that they’ve thought it wise to improve the health sector.
Akufo Addo noted that more hospitals shall be built, old ones renovated, and laboratories would be filled up with advanced tools. He said;
“There are eighty-eight (88) districts in our country without district hospitals; we have six (6) new regions without regional hospitals; we do not have infectious disease control centres dotted across the country, and we do not have enough testing and isolation centres for diseases like COVD-19. We must do something urgently about this. That is why Government has decided to undertake a major investment in our healthcare infrastructure, the largest in our history.”
Well, MP for North Tongu constituency Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has come out to blast President Akufo Addo in reference to his ad-hoc decision.
