Coronavirus Is A Major World War Against Unseen Enemy – NADMO Director
Asante Agyapong Bonnah, has described the novel coronavirus (COVID–19) pandemic as a “major world war” against an unseen enemy.
He, therefore, called on Ghanaians to take their destinies into their hands and quickly adapt to change to suit current trends.
Mr. Agyapong Bonnah who made the call in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Bibiani, urged Ghanaians to try as much as possible to move away from entrenched Socio-Cultural practices like handshaking, hugging, funerals and other activities that assembled large numbers of people in particular locations.
He said Ghanaians should instead learn to develop defensive habits like regular washing of hands with soap under running water for at least 20 seconds, use of hand sanitizer after handling money and opening doors to public places, observing social distancing, and more importantly now, wearing of nose masks when they move out of their homes.
He further urged Ghanaians to rally solidly behind the government by strictly adhering to all preventive measures put in place by it health authorities.
“NADMO will continue to coordinate with institutions like the Ghana Health Service, Environmental Health Department and National Commission on Civic Education to intensify public education on the pandemic.
“Let's all cooperate and fight a good fight and God's willing, victory will surely be ours,” he stated.
