Editor-in-Chief of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr. has called for a collective effort from all Ghanaians to fight against the spread of COVID-19 in the country. Kwesi Pratt Jnr. was worried about the attitude of some citizens who might have relaxed on their efforts in addressing the pandemic and preventing mass transmission of the virus. Although disagreeing with President Akufo-Addo for lifting restrictions on movement, he called on every individual in the country to be a responsible citizen and adhere to all the safety protocols to fight the disease. Mr. Pratt believed should the nation unite irrespective of religion, political affiliations and other differences, the disease will be overcome and therefore there will little to no spread of the virus. “We have to unite to fight this disease. It is not about religion, political affiliation or anything. We will win if we come together to fight the disease,” he said on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ program Friday.
Ghana has recorded 1,279 cases of COVID-19 with 134 recoveries.
