The Daily Graphic calls for an urgent diversification of the economy as the global economy slides into recession as a result of COVID-19 and its future uncertainty. The paper says prices of mineral and other basic commodities that dominate the exports of many poor countries have declined sharply. The Graphic says this has become challenging for most developing countries as they seek to deliver higher productivity jobs for the growing workforce. The paper says a more diversified economy can help reduce economic volatility from commodity cycles and offer new opportunities for more people to benefit. The paper says government action through well designed public investments and effective policy reforms that supports a more diversified economy remains central to economic growth.

The Ghanaian Times throws the spotlight on World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day being marked today to increase awareness of neglected disease and engage the public and stakeholders for urgent efforts to reduce Neglected Tropical Diseases and promote healthier populations in the NTD-endemic areas. The paper entreats government to do all it can to eradicate the disease and at worst, manage those they cannot eradicate with all manner of treatment. Again, it lauds WHO for its willingness to support Ghana towards the eliminating of NTDs and the country for strides made so far. The Times however stresses the need to check NTDs and all other diseases including the COVID-19 pandemic because diseases have telling effects on individuals and national economies.
