Former President John Dramani Mahama has admonished students in Senior High Schools across the country to adhere to preventive measures in order to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
According to the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) preventive measures such as the washing of hands with soap and running water, avoid shaking of hands among others can help prevent the spread of the virus.
“As you have all heard, Ghana has not been spared of the global pandemic coronavirus. Coronavirus is a serious disease. There are simple things that we all can do to avoid the virus and I urge the management of the school to take steps to ensure constant education of the students and the community at large. Large gatherings like this may no longer be ideal until we are able to contain the spread.”
He was speaking at the 15th-anniversary celebration of the St. Andrews Senior High School in Assin Fosu and urged students to report basic symptoms like sneezing, sore throat, and cough to doctors for early treatment.
