The Daily Graphic says the inferno that razed the top floor of the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) reignites the need to step up awareness across the country for regular fire safety by the Ghana National Fire Service. The paper urges GNFS to be more proactive in response to duty and regularly in organising public fire education programmes. It urges GNFS as part of its service, to create and sustain awareness of the hazards of fire and provide technical advice for building plans in respect of machinery and structural layouts to facilitate escape from fire. It further entreats the Service to co-ordinate and advises the training of people in fire-fighting institutions as well as provide rescue services in emergency situations. The Graphic implores all stakeholders including government to provide the needed logistics including vehicles and protective clothing for all firefighters to boost their work effective.

The Ghanaian Times advocates the need for every individual to test their HIV status to enable them to be empowered to lead responsible lifestyles. The paper says this has become imperative considering the fact that the number of estimated new HIV/AIDS infections have risen from 2013 to 2017. According to the Voluntary National Review Report on the Implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Greater Accra and Ashanti regions have the highest new infections whiles the Upper East and Upper West regions have the lowest. With about 30 days to enter 2020, the paper wonders whether the country has done much to achieve the 90 90 90 treat-all-policy. It warns that it is about time everyone takes the bold step to test their status since, “to be forewarned is to be forearmed”.
