COVID-19’s impact

COVID-19, as we all know, has stolen our right to free movement and social gathering, and in some cases, the very lives of our dear ones. The virus has thrown normal life out of the window, gripped man with immense fear and brought the leadership of a confident world to its knees, in search for answers.

Ghana’s steps in combating the virus have been remarkable, demonstrated by the shutting down of our borders, mandatory quarantine, partial lockdown, contact tracing, and the securing of logistics to empower frontline health workers to adequately deal with the virus.

While great leadership, and our united effort as a people has brought us this far, one cannot help but recognize the selfless and fearless efforts of the frontline health workers whose continuous fight against the virus has restored hope to all. They stand tall as the real heroes, and as such deserve to be celebrated.
