Front line health workers helping fight against the COVID-19 pandemic at the Manhyia Government Hospital, in Kumasi, have been presented with Personal Protective Equipments (PPE), courtesy Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh aka ‘Napo’, the MP for Manhyia South Constituency.
The MP, as his widow’s mite presented the PPEs to the hospital to protect the health workers against infection.
The items presented included boxes of face masks, boxes of hand sanitizers and boxes of hand gloves to offer protection to health workers against the Covid-19 virus.
Napo, in his remarks, stated that health workers in Ghana are doing a yeoman’s job to stop the spread of the deadly virus in the country, so far and “they deserve applause”.
In this regard, he said it is appropriate that the hard working health workers are supported and motivated to sustain their good works for the country.
Napo, who doubles as the Minister of Education, particularly urged the citizenry to support the health workers to stay safe from being infected.
According to him, the items presented, surely would offer the needed protection to the health workers, who are determined to work and save human lives.
Napo urged parents and guardians to ensure that their children stay at home during this period of lockdown in some parts of the Ashanti and Greater Accra regions.
He pointed out that the children, if they are allowed to roam about aimlessly, may be infected by the virus “and they will also infect their parents back home”.
Dr. Michael Opoku, a Surgeon at Manhyia Government Hospital, who received the items, described Napo as a caring and development-oriented leader.
He said it is true that health workers faces the risk of being infected by the virus and so Napo’s important donation will surely protect the health workers, saying “we are grateful to him”.
