The Daily Graphic calls for collective effort in the fight against COVID-19. The paper thinks Ghana’s ability to manage the first phase of the pandemic gave way to complacency. This, it’s says has led to the recent spike in cases. The Graphic believes the country can only survive the second phase if individuals protect themselves to preserve others. The paper thinks this is not the time for stigmatization and discrimination against people with COVID-19. It therefore calls on all to treat both survivors and suspected patients with respect and also encourage them to educate others on the disease.
The Ghanaian Times says it’s about time Ghana’s attention was shifted to using home grown remedy to curb COVID-19. The paper says the virus is spreading fast with more than 300 people losing their lives. It says although there is a vaccine to prevent the disease from infecting other people, they are not readily available to all countries. The paper commends the former Provost of the College of Health Sciences of the University of Ghana Professor Andrews Ayettey for conducting research into Hydrogen per-oxide which according to him one percent of it when gargled or dropped into the nose for a minute could deactivate the SARS-Co V-2 strain that causes COVID-19.
