COVID-19: Environmental health practitioners threaten to boycott burial

The practitioners say government must give them incentives as they risk their lives in burying persons who die of COVID-19

Environmental health practitioners within the Cape Coast metropolis have threatened to boycott burial of persons who die of COVID-19.

According to the practitioners, their job is quite risky hence the government must consider them as part of the essential workers.

They want the government to sign them on incentive packages just as other frontline health workers amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking to Asaase News, the Cape Coast Metropolitan Environmental Health Officer, Idris Shani said they have channeled their concerns through their superiors but their situation is still the same.

Shani wants the government to act swiftly on their demands before they start boycotting COVID-19 burial activities.
