The Ghanaian Times believes it is about time the country waged a relentless campaign to educate the public on stigmatization on COVID-19 patients by sharing accurate information about how the virus spreads and providing mental health and service support to those affected by the canker. The Paper is of the view that the stigmatization that is taking place confirms that in times of crisis, people tend to look for scapegoats in order to vent their frustrations on. It is, therefore, joining the President to appeal to the people to stop the stigmatization of those who have recovered from COVID-19. The Paper calls on all citizens to consider the fight against COVID-19 as one for everybody because the disease is no respecter of persons.
The Daily Graphic says Emergency Medical Care Services are essential in ensuring that people live. The Paper believes that emergency services and responses are well perfected in developed countries such as the United Kingdom and The United States of America. In view of this, the current government is committed to ensuring an effective Emergency Medical Service (EMS), to help improve the country’s emergency response capabilities. As Ghana battles the COVID-19 pandemic and other diseases, a better emergency effort is required.
