Mahama Cries Over Covid Spread


Former President John Dramani Mahama is expressing worry about how most of the people are not interested in going for the Covid test, either getting vaccinated and rather attributed their illnesses to the seasonal harmattan whenever they experience cold flu.

In a New Year Message on 31st December 2021 posted on his Facebook page, Mr. Mahama noted that “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”.

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

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

He advised Ghanaians that “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”.

He also urged that the Public to also observe the COVID protocols, social distancing, wash their 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” Mr. Mahama stated.
