Outspoken Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson is upset over the somewhat politicization of the Covid-19 pandemic in Ghana.
The actress says relevant government bodies are concerned about the PR aspect of the virus than actually fighting it.
In a series of tweets, Lydia posited that political affiliation should not matter at thus time, as any human life lost was heartbreaking.
She wrote “We’ve been focused more on PR than actually fighting #COVID?19 and it’s coming back to bite us in the ass. When restrictions were relaxed so did the people, it’s just who we are. Stop spinning this, let us know the brutal truth so we can protect ourselves,”
Another tweet read “Honestly I’m sad. Your political affiliation really shouldn’t matter in times like this, any human life lost is heartbreaking. This isn’t a time for politics, we have to come together and fight this. It also means that we should STOP using #COVID?19 as a campaign strategy.”
She added “But we should risk our lives to go and stand in line to register?!!! And please don’t come and tell us other countries have done it, we aren’t other countries!! My parents are now forced to chose between exercising their franchise and their health!!!”
“We must understand that #COVID?19 is something the whole world is trying to figure out. We have more questions than answers and we find something new each day. So all we can really do is be extra cautious, that’s the only protection we have,.
