Hon. Inusah Fuseini , Member of Parliament for Tamale Central in the Northern Region, has called on Ghanaians not to take for granted precautionary measures against contracting the novel Coronavirus as everyone is susceptible to the pandemic.
Speaking in an interview with Kwame Nkrumah Tikesie on Wednesday on Okay FM, Hon. Inusah Fuseini reiterated that the new coronavirus does not need visa to move or travel as it will need people to do the spreading; thus, remaining at home as instructed will go a long way to contain the disease and eventually clamp it down in the country.
“I believe that you and your co-workers are protecting yourselves against this corona virus because this pandemic does not need visa to move. It can attack anyone and anybody at all can also spread the virus and so we all should strive to protect yourselves”, Hon. Inusah Fuseini cautioned.
“If you don’t have any work to do in town, go and stay at home up to the time that the corona virus will vanish. This disease is dangerous; the world will never be the same after COVID-19”, he warned.
The Information Ministry in a media briefing on the state of the Coronavirus hinted that the country is hit by 195 cases with 49 people having recovered from the disease and discharge for home care, while the death toll remains 5.
