Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Award-winning actress, Yvonne Nelson, has admonished Ghanaians not to risk their safety in these COVID-19-plagued times for any politician.
The actress took to her Twitter page to sound the word of caution to all Ghanaians over the new voter registration exercise currently ongoing nationwide.
She asked Ghanaians to use their "common sense" so as not to endanger themselves and that of their families all in the name of the 2020 December elections.
Yvonne went on to say that the outcome of the upcoming election was not going to change the life of the voter in any way.
Her post read:
"Politician: Stay home, stay safe ~ People: OK ~ Politician: Go out and register ~ People: OK ME: The politician doesn't care about you, use your common sense, this election won't change anything in your life, joining crowded queues endangers your life."
Yvonne Nelson's comments come on the back of calls from politicians asking Ghanaians to go out and register for the new voters' ID card despite glaring risks of contracting COVID-19.
As it is clear now, Ghana's coronavirus case count is just a few numbers shy of hitting 22,000.
Due to this, concerns have come from many professional bodies and individuals on the need to religiously observe all the safety protocols so as to stabilise the increase in numbers.
Many celebrities, like Yvonne Nelson, have used their social media presence and influence to caution Ghanaians to stay safe and stay home if possible to avoid contracting the COVID-19 disease.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH) has stated it will no longer attend to urgent cases due to an increase in coronavirus infections among its staff members.
The deputy director of medical affairs revealed that a majority of the surgical staff were currently self-isolating.
In a memo sighted by YEN.com.gh, the suspension will be in force for two weeks.
