The dire effects of the deadly coronavirus pandemic cannot be underestimated as the pestilence has had a toll on every facet of our development as a country.
The rate at which it was spreading coupled with how many people were dying out of same made it necessary for some safety measures to be put in place to safeguard the population from the virus.
As a result, Ghanaians were restricted from attending functions in their numbers, social gatherings were barred, church and mosque services were banned, supporters into football stadiums were banned including football itself.
Funerals were restricted. All forms of gatherings were arrested by these safety measures. However, the rate of increase in the numbers have come down drastically and death toll reduced considerably.
An indoor event held by the Christ Embassy Church saw thousands of patrons thronging the place. We still have not seen any spike in the infected cases.
The funeral of the late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie aka Sir over the weekend wasn’t a different story. The protocols were breached.
Football teams are suffocating from the 25% supporters into stadiums. This must be upped now.
Cinemas must be opened. General restrictions must be lessened to help the economy grow at a faster rate.
