Doctors’ strike hits Ghana’s AAG team over medical checkups

Chef de mission for Ghana’s All Africa Games contingent Saka Acquaye has revealed the nationwide strike by doctors has affected the medical examinations for the qualified athletes for the multi-sport competition next month in Brazzaville.

The over 250 athletes, who will represent Ghana at the event, are facing challenges to undergo their medicals at the 37 Military Hospital.

Though the doctors’ strike has left the hospital congested, Acquaye said his outfit is working hard to speed up the medical examination of the athletes.

“The current strike by the Ghanaian doctors is a problem so there is congestion at the 37 Military Hospital,” Acquaye told Starr Sports.

“We are asking them to share some of the medical check-ups like the eye and ear. They should go check their hearts, toilet and urine so that they can correct any medical fault they find before the multi-sport events,” he added.

“We have seen some of the authorities to help examine the athletes quickly before they embark on the trip to Congo.”
