Renowned Medical Practitioner warns of high rise in COVID-19 cases coming December

Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye has foretold what is yet to come should the institutions involved in the management of the nation's health refuse to work around the clock. 

He has said that if care is not taken, Ghana is bound to experience an upsurge in the number of COVID cases comigg December.

He was speaking on one of Despite Media's platform on the topic and how best it can be tackled in the country. 

From his view as a Medical Practitioner, he said that in December, it is likely the weather is going to be cold and as a result, during such times, colds, throat and lung diseases and the viruses that are capable of causing such infections turns to be stronger during such seasons because they are able to grow and multiply since the weather is conducive for themduring such times. 

This phenomenon is likely to grow abroad than in Sub-Saharan Africa because the weather differs. But, he was quick to add that, the case might not differ in the sense that during such times, many people gather round in the open places for shopping, having fun and others whereas the virus is likely to grow and affect people who are not vaccinated by then and can be found in the open without observing the laid down protocols.

Last year 2020, a similar issue happened in some areas of thr country especially, the highly populated cities in the country like Kumasi, Takoradi, and Accra. 

The former Member of Parliament for the Ledzokuku Krowor Constituency mentioned that almost all institutions in all countries are preparing to embrace the season and deal with them accordingly in order not to be overwhelmed by the virus.
