Leadership of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) has applauded the government for putting in place prudent measures in the fight against the novel coronavirus pandemic.

According to the party, the move to close down borders and all entry points into the country was a clear indication of government’s commitment to the fight.
The National Chairman of the party, John Amekah, gave the commendation in an interview with the Daily Statesman on the sidelines of a programme to fine-tune and assess the performance of government in the Covid-19 fight.
He also commended the government for the lockdown of some parts of Greater Accra, Kasoa and Kumasi where most of the cases have been recorded.
Mr Ameka also commended all political parties and civil society organisatiions for their efforts in partnering the government in the fight.

Observe protocols

He urged the public to adhere to the standards and recommendations from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Ghana Health Service (GHS), by ensuring regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs and social distancing.

The LPG chairman also advised the public to avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.
He noted that the decision by the government to absorb the three months’ water bills of residents, feeding of some kayayes, as well as the 50 percent increase in frontline workers’ basic salary and adequate supply of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), among others are measures, that will go a long way in making the Covid-19 fight very effective.
