Jonathan Mensah worried about health workers due to outbreak of coronavirus

Ghana and Columbus Crew defender Jonathan Mensah is worried about health workers following the outbreak of coronavirus in the world.

The deadly virus has infected over 174,000 people globally, claiming 6800 lives including Ghana after six cases have been recorded so far.

The coronavirus has halted all football activities in several countries across the global including the likes of England, Spain, Germany, France, Italy, Ghana, South Africa, Morocco and many others until further notice.

While most organisations and workforces are being urged to take a break, health workers, on the other hand, have been caught up in the situation as demand for health services around the world keep increasing.

"As we take all the precautionary measures in order to be safe in our homes, let’s not forget to say a prayer especially for our health care workers," Mensah posted on social media.

"No panic but rather let’s be courageous and wise. We’ve always needed each other but in times like this, we need each other more."
