LIFE IN COMPULSORY QUARANTINE
HRH: mummy is coming
Meanwhile mummy and all the others on the last BA flight from London last night, were taken straight into compulsory quarantine!!! Well, it was quite a sight last night. No one. Absolutely no one was allowed to go home or see relatives who had come to meet them.
The minister for National Security and his deputy, BNI director and other security operatives, the police, military and health professionals were all at the airport to ensure that no one escapes.
You arrive, they screen you, you go and pick up your luggage and wait for your turn to be bused to the hotel.
This morning, I opened my door and the military guy on the floor said, ‘Madam please go back inside”. Well I was just looking!!! Anyway, so, they leave the food at your door, knock and leave. No human contact.
The only human contacts are the fully PPE clothed health officials who come to take our samples for testing. Quite an uncomfortable process, though very necessary.
Ghana is taking this seriously and we the citizens must take it seriously too.
It’s not fun to be under compulsory quarantine but it is very necessary!!! Take care of yourself and let’s be kind to each other.
Life goes on. Don’t put your life on hold. Live it but remember these are dangerous times, so be careful.
Follow all the protocols. Wash your hands, sanitize etc.
Stay safe and help save other people’s lives.
It’s a tough time for our front line health professionals. Let’s make it a bit easy for them by doing the right thing.
And oh remember, anyone and I mean anyone can get the virus. So please don’t stigmatize those who have it.
And don’t be afraid to report if you show symptoms of corona virus. Early detection will help save your life and that of your loved ones.
I am Oheneyere Gifty Anti, and I am in compulsory quarantine!!! Ghana means business. Let’s Support the fight.
Let’s Pray for Ghana.
Remember, I am a woman with super crazy Faith in God. God has given us wisdom. Let’s apply it.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that President Nana Akufo-Addo had directed that all of Ghana's borders be closed for two weeks as the nation fights the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
The closure of the borders starts from 12:00am on Sunday, March 22, 2020, after which every human who wants to enter will be quarantined and tested for the virus.
"Firstly, all our borders, that is by land, sea, and air will be closed to human traffic for the next two weeks, beginning midnight on Sunday.
Anybody who comes into the country before midnight will be mandatorily quarantined and tested for the virus.
" However, Akufo-Addo added, "this closure will not affect goods, supplies, and cargo."
