The National Commission on Culture in collaboration with COVID-19 Trust Fund organized a Covid-19 awareness campaign at the Kaneshie market to sensitize the public on the need to keep to the safety protocols of the COVID-19 Pandemic. The Executive Director of National Commission on Culture, Madam JANET Edna Nyame in her address indicated that, COVID-19 has really dealt negatively with people all over the world, but recently with the introduction of the vaccines, things seem to be coming back to normal. Miss Nyame pleaded with the market women to always wear their mask, and ensure that their customers also wear theirs before they attend to them. She said, they meet a lot of people within the day, so if they begin advocating for the wearing of mask and use of the sanitizers, they will go a long way to save lives.
She also added that the GPRTU should also make sure people who board their vehicles, wear their mask throughout the journey. Most drivers have nicely embossed “No Mask, No Entry” on their cars but even the drivers do not wear the mask.
The Executive Director also appealed to all Ghanaians to adhere to safety protocols of COVID-19 outlined by the Ministry of Health and Ghana Health Services and also take the vaccine when it gets to their community and ignore all the myth around it.
The Executive Director of the Covid-19 National Trust Fund Secretariat and Former Chief Justice, Her Ladyship Sophia Akuffo, used the opportunity to thank all Ghanaians who have in one way or the other contributed to the fund and urged them to do more since covid-19 is still with us. She advised Ghanaians to wear the mask well and also not to get too physically close to friends and family because COVID-19 is real and with a lot of people and organizations facing challenges, very soon the fund will not be able to support people so it’s important we protect ourselves and stay home if we do not have anything to do outside.
