Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas will on August 10, 2020 premier another exposé on COVID-19.
The exposé ‘Cashing in on COVID’, produced with the BBC Africa Eye team will be released on Monday.
This documentary is being released a few months after the ace journalist exposed some herbal medicine producers who were selling unapproved coronavirus cures to the public.
The latest report will however expose hospital staff who are cashing in on the virus by selling Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs) meant for use by health personnel.
With the first investigation posing as the brother of a man infected with the virus, Mr Anas sets out to find so-called cures, some of which were advertised on radio, and expose the men who manufacture and sell them.
The investigation focuses on scammers known as the “Abdellah brothers.”
Anas after the first exposé said that the undercover investigation was in two parts, and exposes both fake cures and corruption in the country’s fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said the first part of the documentary, focused on the illegal manufacture and sale of ‘fake cures’ for COVID-19 and added that the second part, which will be premiered on August 10 dealt with corruption and stealing, would be aired in two weeks.
