Professor Margaret Kweku calls for attitudinal change in COVID-19 fight

Professor Margaret Kweku, National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for Hohoe Constituency has called on the citizenry to adhere to all preventive and precautionary measures in the fight against the novel coronavirus disease.

Professor Kweku who educated the Likpe Bala community on COVID-19 and measures to prevent its spread said there was a need for community sensitization on the disease especially farming communities where they may not access media information.

She said the virus, which was spreading fast required extensive education to villages in order to prevent unforeseen circumstances of overburdening health facilities while the government also adopted measures such as the closure of schools and borders as well as ban on social gatherings among others.

The Professor noted that most people in the communities had misconceptions such as the use of “akpeteshie” as a cure for the disease, which needed to be addressed to prevent people from using it as a remedy.

She called on bar operators to practice the use of disposable cups in serving customers, which could not be reused since they may not adequately disinfect the glasses used. This she expected would result in a behavioural change among the citizenry.

The community expressed gratitude for the education and pledged to adhere to all measures to curb the spread of the virus as well as educate each other in the communities.

Professor Kweku carried out similar community sensitization fora in Hohoe Ahado, Likpe Mate, Gbi Godenu, Gbi Wegbe, Lolobi Ashambi, Fodome Helu, Santrokofi Gbodome and Alavanyo Kpeme.
