Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah

Government urges all Ghanaians to disclose vital information to healthcare workers when they visit facilities for healthcare to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

This came in when Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, outlined necessary precautions to be taken during diagnosis while protecting frontline healthcare professionals from possible contraction.

This came in when former President of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kuffour popularly known as Obour who failed to disclose the travel history of his father who returned from The UK and died of coronavirus on Thursday evening. An accusation he denied.

About 15 workers who were on duty at the time are currently under self-quarantine as contact tracing is currently ongoing to prevent further possible infections after test results of the deceased returned positive.

The Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah believes that such issues brings other people’s lives in danger since you have come in contact with other people.

On Sunday’s press briefing, the Information Minister said,

“we have recorded incidents where persons who eventually test positive initially withhold relevant information from doctors and nurses.”

 “it is very unhelpful to the cause. It puts our healthcare workers at unnecessary risk.”

“You have no reason or basis to withhold relevant information such as your travel history etc… which may be necessary to help them to ensure that they are well protected and your care is activated as quickly as possible.”

Government says these measure if adhered to will assist the country’s fight towards containing the spread of Covid-19.

 The issue with social distancing is a problem at some centers, though according to the the world health organization (WHO) the deadly Coronavirus highly spread when one comes into contact with an infected person. We might wash our hands and use the hand sanitizers, wear the face marks but if the protocol on social distancing is not observed at it’s highest level, people will perhaps get the virus without knowing they have because social distancing at some registration centers wasn’t looked at or observed.

In his view, if the Government should close down schools it would not be a good thing as majority of the students are having the virus. There are over 250,000 students across the country and if the Government should allow them to come home just imagine what would happen. They are going to infect other people and it would be disastrous. Health experts say it is not advisable for them to come home so he does not agree with pressure groups who are mountain pressure on the Government to close down schools. 

Please let us continue to protect ourselves by observing the safety precautionary measures ie washing of hands with soap under running water, wear your face mask when stepping out and observe social distancing. Please watch him in the video below. Thank you. #staysafe
