‘Lack of coordination, clarity to contain COVID-19 disturbing’

Adam Bonaa, Chief Executive Officer of Security Warehouse Limited, has criticised the lack of coordination and clarity in the measures being rolled out to contain or prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus(Covid-19) disease in the country.

Schools were closed down, Form Three students were left and within a week the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) says no exams and Form Three students are now being asked to come home at a time when the numbers are going up.

“Chances are that if we are not careful and the coordination and clarity are not properly done we will have the disease traveling because Form Three students were told to go home yesterday and they are going to leave from one place to another.

“Chances are also  that some of them might come into contact with those who have been infected, issues have to be properly coordinated and clarified,  there should be no ambiguity in what the president has told the citizenry,” Mr Bonaa cautioned.

President Nana Akufo-Addo on Saturday night ordered closure of all of Ghana’s borders, land, air, and sea to human traffic effective midnight Sunday, March 22, 2020, for the next two weeks in the wake of coronavirus outbreak in the country and anybody who comes into the country before midnight on Sunday will be mandatorily quarantined and tested for the virus.

Addressing the country in a national broadcast, the president noted that the closure does not apply to goods, supplies and cargo however, the Ministry of Health would not only rump up its contact tracing effort but would also see to it all persons who have been identified as having come into contact with infected persons are tested for the virus.

Ghana as of Sunday, March 22, 2020, has so far confirmed 21 coronavirus cases with one death.-kasapafmonline.com
