Day and Night, Morning and Evening we wake up to the tune of our Television Sets sending voices to our ears telling us how enormously the spread of a virus all over the world has emerged.
A virus becomes dominant so certainly spreading through continents and what have we; people falling ill, lives being lost, economies on the brink of collapse because of resource waste.
Do we call it “A take over”?
The outbreak was declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) on 30th January 2020 by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and was subsequently declared a pandemic on 11th March 2020.
It then ceased the happy moments with friends, fun time lost its sense of humour, and so is time with families. Battling the COVID-19 Pandemic as at now has affected persons, religion, businesses, and education.
The virus has spread over all the world now and everyone seems to be on the run for cover and seeking protection.
A time where we won’t know who’s next in the line to contract the disease. Lockdown as a major preventive measure; Practicing social distancing is the best cure now.
Locally, the President of Ghana is doing what others in his shoes would have done. Confirmed cases keep increasing in the country as at 408.
34 recovered cases – a little bit impressive.
As part of the imposition of the lockdown restricting movement in the Executive Instrument issued, provision of free PPEs to the front line workers, free water and 50% off electricity for 3 months.
The government has provided security to the citizens to help ensure law and order is being enforced otherwise the law will take charge to those who flout it.
Internationally, I would say researchers are still looking for a possible cure to fight the CoronaVirus. Others are recovering, others dying it’s been a challenge as at now.
Total Lockdown imposed on the citizens. I bet it’s the best way to prevent the spread.
In the future when all these shall pass we shall lift God up and thank him for everything, for we’ve been through the test.
The pandemic actually doesn’t affect the young or old, nor the rich or poor, president nor citizen, nor believers or unbelievers… it is coming for you.
That is why there have been preventive measures on the media educating the public that we could adhere to in order to stay safe.
I urge all to follow the protocols.
1. Wash your hands with soap.
2. Use Alcohol-based Sanitizer.
3. Keep the distancing.
