Managers of hospitals in the country are faced with challenges in the deployment of health workers in the wake of COVID-19.

The development has also necessitated the urgent need for government to redefine who a frontline health worker is, as staff not on this list refuse to carry out any COVID-19 related tasks.

The President of Medical Superintendents Ghana, Dr. Joseph Tambil made this known at a press briefing after a Council meeting of the Group in Takoradi in the Western Region.
