Margaret Ansei, a former Municipal Chief Executive for Suhum, has called for more publicity on the coronavirus outbreak in Ghana.
She said there should be community engagements in every part of the country because in her view, not everybody in Ghana is aware of the COVID-19.
“Publicity on this pandemic is low in the country,” she said on the Ghana Yensom show on Accra 100.5FM.
“We sit in Accra and in the other cities and think everybody knows about it but you go to our villages and people seem not to be aware of this. The government must increase the publicity by not discriminating against some radio stations,” she said.
The number of COVID-19 cases in Ghana has gone up again, reaching 5,530, the Ghana Health Service has said.
Also, the number of recoveries has risen to 674. Meanwhile, the death toll remains at 24.
The Greater Accra Region remains the hotspot of the country.
Ms Ansei believed that the government was late in introducing measures to deal with the pandemic hence the increasing numbers.
“We should secured all our entry points when WHO declared COVID-19 pandemic,” she said.
