General Secretary of the National Media Commission (NMC), Mr. George Sarpong, has hailed The Ghanaian Media for a massive campaign fight against coronavirus through its reportage.
According to him, he wants the media to maintain the standard of the profession in ensuring that they spread accurate and authentic information concerning the spread of the Coronavirus disease.
“In the legitimate attempt to reduce public anxiety and provide hope in this moment of disquiet, some media have resorted to making jokes about the disease.
“While humor may have its place in reducing anxieties in moments of national stress, it also carries the risk of minimizing the sense of urgency and possibly leading to complacency in public response,” he warned.
The Commission, therefore, reminded “the media that in a situation like this, the balance still remains our greatest professional virtue and the best way to achieve that is to rely on the official sources for accurate information.”
