Not all health workers will enjoy tax exemption – Health Minister

The Minister of Health, Mr Kwaku Agyeman Manu, has clarified the category of nurses who would enjoy tax exemptions as announced by President Akufo-Addo on Sunday.
According to him, although the services of nurses are critical in the fight of the Coronavirus disease, not all of them were in the frontline of the pandemic.

President Akufo-Addo on Sunday announced some measures taken by government to ameliorate the plight of health workers fighting the disease.

Among the measures are tax reliefs for the months of April, May and June, an insurance package of GH¢350,000 for each health personnel and allied professional at the forefront of the fight , as well as an additional allowance of 50 per cent of their basic salary per month for the months of March, April, May and June.

But addressing the press on Tuesday, the Minister for Health said “All of us are health workers but not all of us will do some work to that will make us take advantage of the large bonus.”
