Coronavirus: Some political factions are excited over death toll and not recoveries – Sammi Awuku

The National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Samuel Awuku has called on some political factions and opposition parties to join the country to celebrate over the Coronavirus recoveries rather than praying for more deaths tolls.

According to him, these parties are wishing that the sitting government fails in its fight against the Coronavirus pandemic to suit their propaganda purposes.

The National Organizer of the NPP made this comment in an interview on Happy 98.9 FM’s ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ political talk show with Afrifa-Mensah. “We have recorded an excess of 5000 cases of COVID-19 with more recoveries and really low deaths but some political factions are not glad about the recoveries. They are just excited over the deaths.”

When speaking about the sitting government’s efforts in the COVID-19 fight, he acknowledged that the government had done extremely well.

“The government has done a great job in the fight against COVID-19 especially with educating the public.”

He advised Ghanaians to treat the COVID-19 pandemic with all seriousness. “The virus is not a myth and the statistics we see on our television sets are not telling us the time. They represent human lives. ”

As at today, Ghana has recorded 6,096 COVID-19 cases with a total of 31 deaths.

Number of persons who have recovered from the virus are pegged at 1,773 people with 4,292 active cases.
