It's been a while since the president came to our homes as he affectionately puts it in his occasional address to the nation.
Within this space of limited time,a lot has transpired and Ghanaians of all walks of life are anxiously awaiting the president to address the nation on the way forward in respect to the fervent fight against the deadly Corona virus pandemic.
Checks at the website of the Ghana health service paints a very gloomy picture about our covid situation as the new caaes recorded are 490 and the active cases are now 6567 . Unfortunately,572 people have sadly succumbed to the virus.
Though there has been a marginal decrease in the active cases the number of deaths are sharply rising.This calls for pragmatic steps to be undertaken in order to ensure the rate at which inocent Ghanaians loose their precious lives is curtailed.
The virus fortunately does not affect people on it own rather it is people who carry it along and infect one another.So what needs to be done at this crucial moment is to put in place measures to limit interpersonal interactions.
This calls for a paradigm shif in the way we go about our daily activities in this country.The president is likely to address the nation tonight since it's been a while since he addressed the nation and these are the issues the first gentleman of the land is likely to highlight so let us take note.
The president is likely to impose tougher restrictions since our cases are not decreasing including those who are succumbing to the deadly Corona virus pandemic.
The earlier ban on social gatherings is like to be maintained or even toughened. As emphatically asserted by economic experts,the country cannot go under lockdown owing to the dire consequences associated with it so the notion of lockdown must be discounted.
Public transport operators are likely to be advised to reduce their intakes as this will enhance social distancing in the various public transports and this can help reduce the spread of the disease.
Schools closure is also out of the equation since according to the experts, school kids are more safer in their various institutions than in the house.
If there will be schools closure at all,then it will be from those from creche to class three as they are those who falls in the category of personsa who finds it difficult adheringto the basic safety protocols.
All outstanding issues with respect to health providers are likely to be addressed by the president.
The issue of when and how the procured vaccines will arrive and administered is also likely to be addressed by the president.
Folks the situation is gradually getting out of hand and and it is high time we ensure the safety of ourselves and our family members.
The nation needs to act fast and stop the alarming rate this deadly pandemic is plaguing our land.
Please let us all adhere to the safety protocols and stay safe..
