The Central Regional Minister Kwamena Duncan has advised his people to rethink their stance following more news that the Chiefs and people of Brafoyaw, a community in the Central Region, have kicked against the use of Aggrey Memorial Zion Senior High School as an isolation camp for COVID-19 patients.
According to the community, using the school as a facility for COVID-19 patients will endanger the lives of the people living in the community.
There were earlier reports in the media suggesting that Health Authorities have chosen the school as an isolation center.
There was also speculation that the Effutu Senior High School and the St.Augustines Senior High School were earmarked as isolation centers.
Speaking in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan advised the people of Central Region to understand and respect the decision of the Government because it is in their favor not to hurt them.
“The people responsible for this are professionals, they will not endanger any life, this is for the good of all of us if the place is dedicated as an isolation center it is meant to protect the larger community if you don’t agree and protest against the ideas then you are putting your own life in danger”, he told Peace FM news.
On April 8, 2020, Central Region recorded its first Coronavirus (COVID-19) case which happens to be a 57-year-old man.
The patient, a clergyman by profession, according to the Regional Health Directorate travelled to the United Kingdom (UK) and returned to Ghana on 17th March 2020.
The man, being a diabetic patient was asked by his doctor to run some tests. It was through these tests that his coronavirus status became known.
