The Ministry of Health has announced a GHC350,000 insurance package each for all health and allied professionals at the frontline of the COVID-19 response who happen to lose their lives in the course of their duty.

The amount is set to come from a special GHC10.3 million insurance premium that has been instituted by the government for the 10,000 health and allied professionals deployed to subdue and eliminate the novel coronavirus which has already claimed five lives in the country.

In a memo to all relevant agencies signed by the sector minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu, the Ministry of Health also announced a GHC25,000 package per life for personnel who may fall critically ill as a result of the fight.

For each of those who may be rendered temporally disabled, an amount of GHC10,000 awaits them.

The Ministry was full of praise for the efforts and sacrifice of the health professionals despite the somewhat threatening nature of the disease.

“As health professionals and allied professionals at the frontline of the COVID 19 response, I seize the opportunity to thank you and your families sincerely for the sacrifice to this national challenge, the memo said.

“Please bring this to the attention of all staff deployed and please ensure the appropriate documentation of the process which is strategic for the next steps, it added.
