Ghana's president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has listed 11 different local Ghanaian foods that can help the citizens in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The president revealed the list in his address to the nation regarding the COVID-19 outbreak in Ghana and the measures that are to be taken to curb its effects.
According to the president, 11 Ghanaian foods namely oranges, kontomire, millet, cashew nut, crab, plantain, okra, dawadawa, brown rice and mushrooms; are very helpful in the fight against COVID-19.
Nana Akufo-Addo explained that these foods contain Vitamins A, B6, C and E which have proven to be highly relevant to help boost the immune system against diseases.
Many Ghanaians must have been thinking they would need some sophisticated medicines to help keep their bodies strong against ailments especially the novel coronavirus.
The president's list, however, shows that with the least of resources, Ghanaians in all spectrums of the social stratum can protect themselves effectively as the foodstuffs listed are quite easy to come by.
Ghana has currently recorded over 4,700 cases of the novel coronavirus with 22 deaths.
Meanwhile, another report has it that a gentleman whose name has not been identified has given the mother what is clearly a prank of her lifetime after acting like he was suspending in the air.
Although it is not clear when exactly the video was taken, it has undoubtedly added to the Mothers' Day sensation.
The prank was such a vivid one as it totally seemed without a doubt as though the boy was actually hanging in mid-air over the bed.
