Corpses stored in various morgues across the country are decomposing due to lack of electricity to power the refrigerators.

Pulse.com.gh paid a visit to some morgues in Accra and has found that hospitals are struggling with the cost of fuel to power their generators.

Speaking to a morgue attendant, (name withheld), he stated that the operations of the mortuary are gravely affected by the erratic power supply in the country. He said the bodies will decompose if the power crisis persist.

Hospitals are forced to spend thousands of cedis to buy diesel to power the generators at the morgue.

The morgue attendant added that he fears losing his job because families may not bring their relatives who are dead to the mortuary.
