Former President John Dramani Mahama has urged President Akufo-Addo to intensify education and campaign on the novel Coronavirus pandemic.
According to him, the government should create awareness over the widespread of COVID-19.
He disclosed this in his 7th address to the nation on the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Right from the start of this pandemic, public education and awareness has been poor. Messages must be crafted in all local languages and aired extensively on all our media of mass communication,” he observed.
“Government should speed up the initiative of manufacturing locally made masks, which can be washed, pressed and reused again. These should be handed out free of charge to the public. Strong public education on the safe use of masks must accompany this initiative,” Mahama noted during his live digital conversation on his social media pages.
John Mahama called on the government to equip pharmaceutical companies to produce more personal protective equipment (PPE’s ) to help protect Frontline health workers who are helping to fight the spread of COVID-19.
Ghana’s coronavirus case count has increased to 1,154 with 120 recoveries, according to the Ghana Health Service (GHS).
