Coronavirus has undoubtedly caused tension, affected economies, deprived people of happiness, and claimed many lives. As the world struggles to find a vaccine to win the fight against the pandemic, a number of comedy skits have been produced by some people in the arts to serve as comic reliefs.
Here comes a classroom setting with about five pupils occupying the space. A female teacher is seen engaging her pupils as she teaches them about the pandemic.
The mistress first confuses the pupils with figures.
“If the population of Ghana is 20,000 and we have 22,000 confirmed cases and 25,000 recoveries,” her words triggered a question from one of the pupils who was puzzled.
“Madam, 25,000 recoveries… What sort of medicine was used in the treatment?” he wondered.
But that was the genesis of a dose of laughter as one of his colleagues served him a cheeky response.
“It’s from the gods”, he said with another rebutting with yet another sarcastic response – “It’s medicine for the treatment of piles.”
Recall OccupyGhana’s alleged that the Ghana Health Service was massaging the figures of Coronavirus casualties - a claim GHS denied? Well, the only female pupil among the five tabled it before her teacher in a crooked sentenced.
“Madam, my father says the figures are massaging,” she said – causing the teacher to also become sarcastic in her response which subsequently sparked laughter from the pupils.
“The figures are gyming”.
Before the break period, the pupils are told what awaits them when they return. They’ll have to give the names of two people who have contracted the disease.
“Madam, as for this, unless Fellow Ghanaians,” one replied.
For strangers in Jerusalem, “Fellow Ghanaians, I come into your homes this evening” is President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s usual greeting before he commences his updates to the country on measures taken against the spread of coronavirus.
