It was then realised that those who bury these bodies have been on strike for almost two weeks now.

The head of this department was interviewed and according to him, they have been on strike for a very long time and no one has even decided to listen to them and address their problem. He continued that they lack equipment to protect themselves when working on the bodies.Also, the government promised to let them stop paying tax till December for risking their lives dealing with COVID 19 but they are still paying tax.

In conclusion, he made it clear that they are never going to resume their work until the government does something about their challenges in their operations. This is what has been reported from Nkawkaw Hospital.
