After Ghana Received First Consignment Of Covid-19 Vaccines Today, See What Ghana People Are Saying

It was an atmosphere filled with mixed reactions from the Ghanaians a few moments ago after the news of the arrival of the first consignment of Covid-19 Vaccines in Ghana broke. 

In a live update from the Kotoka Airport a while ago, the Ghana Health Minister in person of Kwaku Agyeman was seen delegating people to receive the first of its kind in among all other African countries, from the some UNICEF officials who have transported it to Ghana. A statement received from the official page of the Ghana's Ministry of Information in a live broadcast a while ago after receiving the consignment said that Ghana is the only first country in Africa to have been favoured to receive the Vaccines cargo. 

You will all recall that that on Wednesday, the Ministry of Information in Ghana issued out a memo, informing the general public about the about to be received a consignment of Covid-19 Vaccines, and at the early hour of this morning (Wednesday), Ghanaians woke up to the good news of the arrival of the COVID-19 Vaccines. 

A memo previously sent while expecting Vaccines

The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo Ado after receiving the consignment, will be the first to be tested with the Vaccines and after which, all other thousands of Ghanaians will be able to have access to it. 

The COVID-19, you will all remember, is a pandemic that caused the whole world to be at a standstill early last year, and after that first wave, there has been a second wave of it, of which the impacts on the economy and the academy had been greatly felt. 

However, many Ghanaians are still ignorant of the effects of these Covid-19 cases. Many believe it is not occurring in Africa and so, they can't be affected. But we need to know that many Ghanaians and other people in Africa, including the Ghana Health Minister have been truly being affected by the wave of this monstrous pandemic. 

Another thing that has been noted among many Ghanaians is the issue of stigmatization. That is, people see those who have been tested positive for the virus as people who have failed or who should not be related or talked with. It should be noted that people with the cases have high chances of survival if well taken care of, and now with the arrival of the Vaccines, there's a silver lining in the sky already. 

Following the arrival of the consignment and the live broadcast of it on Social Media, many Ghanaians have reacted differently to the arrival of the COVID-19 Vaccines. While some see it as a piece of good news and a relief as to how the disease can be easily eradicated, some have an ulterior belief of the COVID-19's connectivity with the 5G network.
