Ghanaians disregard Covid-19 protocols amidst spike in numbers.

The ordinary Ghanaian seems to be unconcerned about the virus or the fact that the number of victims are rising.

Many are of the view that the virus isn’t real or it has already been conquered since most of the restrictions have been lifted.

Disregard for COVID-19 protocols

Its quite unfortunate that the average Ghanaian doesn’t treat the virus with the attention it demands in spite of the fact that the number of victims are rising.

This behavior has raised concerns whether we doubt it’s existence amidst all the clear signs that it does exist or we just do not care.
