TV and radio personality Kofi Okyere Darko popularly known as KOD has advised the government against going on total lockdown.
Speaking in an interview with NEWS-ONE, KOD disclosed that a possible lockdown is imminent but most people who will be affected are poor and homeless people.
The current rise in the Coronavirus outbreak has heightened discussions on whether or not to lock down the country to restrict the movement of citizens. While many people feel its a terrible idea especially considering those who sleep at shops and on the streets.
“We live in a very free society but then again to control the spate of coronavirus, that is possibly the only option. We can’t think about a possible lockdown and not consider things like how those who live from hand to mouth would survive, where we are putting the homeless on our streets, some pharmacies and markets will definitely shut down entirely, fuelling stations will not operate (and our fuel stations are not self-service),” KOD explained.
“The only people who will have a comfortable life in such a time are the rich in our communities. It will hurt even though it’s necessary to reduce the spread,” . he added.
Meanwhile, Ghana has recorded 132 of the Coronavirus with at least 4 deaths and 1 recovery.
