Now the case here is that, as at 12th March 2020, Ghana recorded it first two cases and this young region was not part of the region one could have imaging it will be hitting this number. In the early month of June, the were having less than five cases but now hitting hundreds. The danger of this, is how negatively it is going to affect day in day out activities of the region. This region is having very few equipped hospitals which can handle the case but what happen when it is out of hands? It is therefore recommended all citizens adhere to the health safety protocols strictly to break the chain of this virus. We must not give the slightest chance for the virus to loose control. The financial muscle of the region is weak and the country can not afford, if things go bad.
Safety first, all protocols must be observed, our lives matters.
