NDC Blasts Akufo-Addo For Bad Approach Towards Coronavirus D …
Member of Parliament for Juaboso Constituency, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh has chided the President Akufo-Addo government for a porous approach towards the spread of the coronavirus disease.
According to him, the government was aware the coronavirus will soon hit Ghana but failed to put up efficient measures to stop it.
According to him, when the outbreak first occurred in China and hit other African countries, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned that Ghanaians stand a high risk of contracting the COVID-19 due to the porous borders and the aviation system in the country.
Sadly, he claims, “the ruling government ignored all the promptings,” he told UTV
“We took things for granted from the onset and some people insulted us when we warned that we must intensify the precaution measures at our borders and the airport by quarantining people who have traveled to countries where the coronavirus has been detected . . . if anybody says that they didn’t know that Coronavirus will come to the country, then they did not follow the warning of the World Health Organization (WHO) . . .”
“In the governance system, everybody has a part to play. Ghana belongs to all of us and so even if you are in disagreement with someone politically, but he is making a lot of sense which can be helpful, we should stop the insults and work with the suggestion made by others because of our political differences,” he slammed.
The Ghana Health Service has confirmed another case of COVID-19, bringing the total number of recorded cases to seven.
According to the Service’s website, the latest was recorded in the Greater Accra Region.
“The case-patient is a 35-year-old male, a Ghanaian citizen, who returned to Accra from France within the past 14 days,” the statement said.
