The Daily Graphic calls on the Electoral Commission to give heed to the caution by the Ghana Medical Association (GMA)  to ensure that security persons manning the registration centers enforce adherence to the COVID-19 safety protocols. This is to ensure that the community spread of the virus is halted. The Paper says in as much as there is the need to satisfy a constitutional requirement to register to vote every four years, the right to life comes first before any other right. The Paper notes that the country’s health system is not fully equipped to handle any such crisis if it breaks out. It, therefore, suggests that to reduce the community spread, every day each registration centre should be restricted to a limited number of people on a first come first served basis to enforce the social distancing requirements.

The Ghanaian Times finds the intervention by the UN Population Fund to resource the Tamale Teaching Hospital to conduct Obstetric Fistula surgeries for free for women suffering from the condition in the six regions of the North as refreshing. The paper says the condition is one of the major health challenges facing women which appears to be silent but very debilitating. According to the Times, it is a very devastating medical disability affecting women in their reproductive age across the globe with between 711 and 1352 reported cases in Ghana yearly. The situation causes the patient to leak urine and faeces. The Times is therefore happy with the success chalked up by the Tamale Teaching Hospital in successfully conducting 540 surgeries out of 600 cases reported and urges the hospital to do more to help alleviate women from the condition. In view of this, the Paper appeals to both UNFPA and government to address the challenges confronting the hospital to enable it to render quality health services to the public.
