According to him exposing the public to large gathers like the entertainment event can increase the rate at which the virus is spread.
Dada Hafco added that event organizers in ghana should cancel all entertainment events as it has been done in other jurisdictions that are more advanced than Ghana.
“Coronavirus is basically shutting down the entire world. Therefore wherever you find yourself, it is imperative that you put measures in place to make sure it does not affect innocent citizens,” Dada Hafco said in a report on Ghanaweb and sighted by YEN.com.gh.
“For us as entertainers, I think it will be appropriate for us to also start thinking of not coming in contact with people or of not bringing people to a gathering where people can easily catch the virus. The NBA has suspended its activities for the year. If you’re a follower of the NBA, you look at the big money and sponsorship involved and all of that, it makes you think this is getting serious.”
The coronavirus (COVID-19) has currently been declared as a global pandemic that is spreading rapidly around the world.
On March 12, Ghana confirmed two cases of the virus.
But on March 15, four other cases were confirmed to bring the number to a total of six cases recorded in Ghana so far.

In a statement sighted by YEN.com.gh , the embassy will continue to provide online services for visa applications, attestation of documents, sale of dual citizenship forms and issuance letters.
