Member of National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s Covid-19 technical team, Dr. Jehu Appiah has stressed that Ghanaians cannot be made to believe that they can live with the virus as posited by the government.
According to him, we must learn to curb the spread and avoid deaths instead of assuring ourselves that we must learn to live with the Coronavirus because it is here to stay.
Speaking with Kwame Afrifa Mensah on the ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show, he said, “The Covid-19 team is not just political, we are also technical to add on to the good work of Government. Nobody should tell us to learn how to live with it just like how the minister is trying to tell us. We cannot learn to live with it. We cannot learn how to live with death. We can prevent it if we agree to.”
He insisted that the new voters’ registration exercise could cause mayhem and eventually collapse our health system.
“Nurses and Midwives are crying; they are getting infected. As I speak to you now, frontline workers are losing their lives. No amount of 50% increment can bring them back to life. We don’t have equipment. What we are saying is that this needless exercise that Supreme Court has given a go-ahead for is going to give us a lot of trouble.”
