Let’s work to maintain coronavirus-free Volta – Bedzra

 

 

Ho, April 09, GNA – Mr Emmanuel Kwasi Bedzra, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Ho West Constituency, has called on the people in Volta Region to continue adhering to the protocols against contracting the Coronavirus disease.

 



He said as the virus made rounds globally, strict precautions remained the only safeguard and that stakeholders in the Region, including the public, ought to maintain and enhance their guard.

The MP made the call when the COVID-19 Technical Team of the NDC presented personal protective gear to the Ho Teaching Hospital to support its defense against the virus.

“I will encourage all of us to work hand in hand to ensure Volta does not record any positive case. Let’s continue taking all precautions including social distancing and handwashing,” he said.

Mr Kwame Agbodza, MP for Adaklu said the Region must commit to ensuring that the devastating effects of the virus were kept at bay, adding that the NDC would continue to make resources available to help the fight.

“We are praying that this pandemic passes over us quickly. We don’t want to anticipate the real effects of coronavirus in the Region,” he said.

The essentials were from former President John Dramani Mahama’s aid pool in the wake of the viral outbreak, and included 70 sets of PPEs and 50 boots.

Professor Margaret Kweku, Head of the Party’s COVID-19 Technical Team commended Government for the timely cushioning of health workers and also the public as the nation grappled with the virus.

She described the interventions as “timely”, and urged Government to expedite action on them, and also expand initiatives such as the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) to help the poor through the period.
