Actress and radio presenter Naa Ashorkor Mensah-Doku has begun cautioning her followers to keep adhering to the Covid-19 safety protocols because the virus is real.
This follows her announcement on Monday that she has tested positive for the virus after she fell sick and decided to take a test.
“Hello family, after not feeling ‘like myself’ on Thursday night , I did a Covid test and it came out positive. I am feeling okay, following my doctor’s instructions, and currently self-isolating at home. The virus is real. It is still out there. Don’t forget all the safety protocols. Wear your mask at all times. Wash your hands with soap under running water. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser. Stay safe. Covid is still out there,” she wrote on Instagram on Monday.
As at Friday, October 16, the number of active cases in Ghana had declined further to 398, with 46,664 persons fully recovered from the virus, putting the country’s recovery rate at 98.5 per cent.
Thirteen more deaths have occurred, bringing the total number of deaths to 310, out of a total number of 510,074 persons tested.
The rate of death (0.5 per cent) continues to remain very low, President Akufo-Addo stated in his 18th address to the nation on Covid-19 on Sunday.
Naa Ashorkor has taken it upon herself to help save the next person from attracting the virus. She has, therefore, urged the public to adhere to the Covid-19 safety protocols, as they are the surest ways to keep the virus in check from spreading.
“Wear your mask. The virus is still out there,” she said on Tuesday.
