Advice for Ghanaians concerning coronavirus

Click to read all about coronavirus →

I honestly advise that, the president of Ghana should call for a complete lockdown for the whole country for a period of two weeks to help minimize the spread of coronavirus.

Apart from that, there is no other way to help minimize the spread of coronavirus in Ghana.

Vehicles travel every day but if we go into lockdown all the movements of vehicles will stop.

It is through the vehicles that the virus can easily be transmitted from one region, town, village to another within a twinkle of an eye.

This is to fact that the virus can now be alive in the air for 8hrs. A neighbour who is infected can cough or sneeze and move away and an infected person passes them unconsciously and breathes in the virus and get infected.

Lockdown will avoid all these.
