We’ve been focused more on PR than actually fighting coronavirus - Lydia Forson laments

Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson has lamented on how the fight against the Coronavirus is being handled in the country.

In a series of tweets sighted by Zionfelix.net, the outspoken actress enunciated that the fight against the deadly disease has been about PR gimmicks.

“We’ve been focused more on PR than actually fighting #COVID?19 and it’s coming back to bite us in the ass. When restrictions were relaxed so did the people, it’s just who we are. Stop spinning this, let us know the brutal truth so we can protect ourselves,” she wrote.

Lydia Forson also bared her teeth against the politicization of almost everything in the country.

She added: “Honestly I’m sad. Your political affiliation really shouldn’t matter in times like this, any human life lost is heartbreaking. This isn’t a time for politics, we have to come together and fight this. It also means that we should STOP using #COVID?19 as a campaign strategy.

“But we should risk our lives to go and stand in line to register?!!! And please don’t come and tell us other countries have done it, we aren’t other countries!! My parents are now forced to chose between exercising their franchise and their health!!!”


The actress further advised Ghanaians to be extra cautious and adhere to all safety protocols.

“We must understand that #COVID?19 is something the whole world is trying to figure out. We have more questions than answers and we find something new each day. So all we can really do is be extra cautious, that’s the only protection we have,” she accentuated.
