As reported, several newborn babies who had just been born with some critically ill and requiring incubators and ventilators were faced with this terrible fate.

As confirmed by the nurse who spoke in the background of the video, there’s no extra-flow meter to connect to the oxygen making the situation very dire.

“If we don’t get light in a few minutes, the probability that we might lose a lot of babies is high” – The nurse said with a trembling voice and tears in her eyes.

Unfortunately, Tema General Hospital relies solely on ECG for power generation; The health facility has no backup power supply in cases of emergencies

Netizens Reactions…

 

@kingofabidjan – Oh God this scares me so much! Last year, I was in the emergency ward of the tema general hospital for one week. I saw practically how people suffer various illnesses. It’s very scary to think about it when we look at this situation. Insensitive and wicked government

 

@Phacterz1 – Go to ministers home and find huge generators and other backup power supply machines
