COVID-19: Ras Mubarak warns against lockdown in open letter to Akufo-Addo


Summary short_text

Outgone Member of Parliament for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak has written an open letter to President Akufo-Addo ahead of the nation address on the country's fight against the COVID-19 outbreak later tonight.
The former legislator in his letter expressed worry over the increasing spate of infections and warned against the imposition of another lockdown as a means to tackle the situation.
"Given the serious nature of the pandemic and its consequences on our country, we need to focus on prevention by increasing public education and enforcing laws on the wearing of nose masks and other health safety protocols. Finally, there is little or no public discourse on vaccination. The silence is deafening. As a matter of public health policy, is Ghana for or against mass vaccination. If we are against immunization, what are the alternatives? And if we are for it, what are our targets, and what shape and form will a rollout take and timelines", he added.
