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
Since the vaccines are not available in Ghana to protect us against this family of viruses yet, it was directed that we reduce risk of infection by washing our hands with, covering our mouths and noses when we cough or sneeze, disinfecting the objects and surfaces we touch, avoiding crowds and staying home when we don’t feel well.
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.
According to the Ghana health service the number of active cases are up to 1,776.
Social media influence
Twitter users have continuously tried to draw attention to the fact that there is a deadly virus afoot. It is clear that the younger generations are paying much more attention to social distancing rules, wearing masks, washing their hands and using hand sanitizer.
Many seem to have forgotten about the dangers of COVID-19, even though the number of active cases is rapidly on the rise and the new strain of COVID-19 has been detected in the country.
As schools have resumed, there must be a strengthening of the protocol and dangers on COVID-19. So as to avoid mass infection of the virus.
So here we are, urging you to mask up, protect your family and loved ones. Stay safe, COVID-19 is real.
