COVID-19 will stay for long, we must learn to live with it – Health Minister advises

Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang-Manu has advised Ghanaians to learn to stay with the COVID-19 because it has come to stay.

Kwaku Agyemang-Manu in a speech on Thursday morning asked Ghanaians to as a matter of fact help in reducing the rate at which the disease is spread.

“The last time I came here, I made some very good factual statements that the coronavirus has come to live with us and we have to live with it.” 

“We should begin to accept the fact that the disease will be here for a while but we should try to reduce the rate at which we are spreading and getting affected… What we have to do now is to live with it and manage ourselves against it,” Mr. Agyemang-Manu added.

“There are several diseases we have to live with. Malaria has been with us. HIV/AIDS came and we have never been able to shake it off and we still live with it. H1N1 is still around. We still live with it. There are several other diseases we still live with.”

He also advised all to be wearing face masks because it is one of the key protective equipments.

“We will have to find a way to ensure the numbers don’t go up but begin to come down. So if we are adhering strictly to the guidelines and education… we won’t be seeing those hikes we are seeing parts of the country.”
