Coronavirus: May we not experience what Italy is going through – Ivor Greenstreet

The 2016 Presidential Candidate of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, is praying that Ghana and the rest of the world does not experience what Italy is going through with the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Italy is currently the worst hit country of the pandemic with more than 70,000 confirmed cases.

Mr Greenstreet who joined the country’s national fasting and prayer day session which was announced by President Akufo-Addo last Sunday revealed that his son has also been quarantined with suspicion of coronavirus.

He took to his Facebook page to join the country in prayers against the pandemic and according to him, he bleeds within whenever he sees the scenes in Italy.

“I was in Rome with my family at the Vatican Sistene Chapel just last August. Today my son in the picture is quarantined and when I also see the scenes in Italy, my heart just bleeds. Such a beautiful country; such a beautiful people. May such a disaster never befall and overrun our nation and the rest of the world,” he wrote.

He also urged every Ghanaian to take part in the exercise because it is time the country seeks the intervention of the Lord.

“My brothers and sisters, we are all Spirit, Soul & Body. It is natural to PRAY and seek the face of Higher power and divine intervention… Let us all take part in today’s prayers in our way and not make it about religion or denomination. God Bless Our Homeland Ghana ????????.”

Many Ghanaians have also taken to social media to join in the prayer session as Ghana seeks God’s saving grace from the dreadful pandemic.

The Country has so far recorded 68 cases with 2 deaths.
