Coronavirus: Blackstars player Kwadwo Asamoah sends message to Ghanaians from ItalyMarch 24, 2020
Ghanaian international, Kwadwo Asamoah has called on Ghanaians to be law abiding in these hard times as the global pandemic coronavirus is taking its toll on humanity because he believes that the only way the virus can be eradicated from the surface of the earth is humans adhere to the dictate of authorities especially instructions coming from health professionals.
Coronavirus has claimed more than 13,000 precious lives and still counting, but there has not been a specific medication that can cure the disease and this has become a worry because it is feared that after contracting the disease one might not be able to survive from the disease especially those with chronic diseases such as hepatitis B, typhoid etc.
However, there have been some drugs which have been prescribed as the best treatment for coronavirus and have been able to cure some infected persons. Chloroquine is one of such drugs. Also, doctors have said some people do not necessarily need to take drugs when they get infected because the immune system of such persons are strong enough to fight the virus and for that they might not take any drug but they will get healed.
Speaking in an interview with Dan Kweku Yeboah of Peace Fm monitored by smartandstuck.com, the Inter Milan midfielder, indicated that in Italy, the disease is fast spreading and this has led to a total lockdown of the country where everyone has to stay in doors for some time. This is to help prevent the spread of the virus.
“We have been asked to be indoors because of coronavirus and if you want food or anything, you need to call for the particular food item, product or service to be delivered to you in your home. We are all in our homes not able to go out to buy anything or to even exercise.
He was of the greatest conviction that these measures put in place by the Italian government will help in the fight against the deadly disease as the death toll in Italy keeps on increasing by each day. He then called on Ghanaians not to see coronavirus as a joke because it is really claiming the lives of people.
“Someone will see coronavirus as a joke because there have not been much of reported deaths but the disease is really claiming the lives of precious people. I pray Ghanaians adhere to the laws set by government in the fight against coronavirus to prevent the spread of the virus”, he said.
Currently, the number of infected persons in Ghana has increased from 24 to 27 with two deaths recorded so far. The first death was recorded on Sunday 22nd March, 2020. And this was a 61 year old Lebanese spare parts trader in Kumasi, Ashanti Region. Ghana recorded her second death yesterday 23rd March, 2020. The patient is believed to be an elderly woman who reported herself to the Komfo Anokye Teaching hospital after she exhibited symptoms of the disease. But, she passed away before test results of her blood sample was received from the the Kumasi Center for Collaborative Research (KCCR).
