Mahama tells Ghanaians: Let’s be conscious of our health in 2022

“The New Year season is here! Let’s be more conscious of our health as we pray for health workers because of the more transmissible omicron variant.”
The 2020 flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Mahama has urged Ghanaians to follow good public health practices in order to keep safe in 2022.

In a statement on his social media handles on the last day of the year (31 December 2021), he raised concerns on the rise of Omicron variant in the country, calling on Ghanaians to “observe the COVID protocols.”

“Let’s also observe the COVID protocols. Observe social distancing, wash your hands as frequently as possible, avoid handshakes, use hand sanitizers and wear a mask,” Mahama posted on Facebook.



Below is his full post:

Over the last 2 weeks, many people are nursing colds and flu-like symptoms, but with most people not going for a COVID test, it is being attributed to the seasonal harmattan weather.

Dr. Frank Serebuor, President of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has put out a distress notice that medical personnel are overwhelmed by the numbers that are having to go into isolation because of the more transmissible covid-19 omicron variant.

The yuletide season was characterized by super-spreader events such as mega concerts, street carnivals and beach parties.

The New Year season is here! Let’s be more conscious of our health as we pray for health workers because of the more transmissible omicron variant.

Let’s also observe the COVID protocols. Observe social distancing, wash your hands as frequently as possible, avoid handshakes, use hand sanitizers and wear a mask.

And please GET VACCINATED if you haven’t done so yet. If you have, go for your second dose.
Stay safe this New Year season!

I wish all Ghanaians a Happy New Year.
