  7. It is advisable to be physically active, drink plenty of water, eat healthy food, avoid stress and have enough sleep.

  8. We must inculcate the habit of wearing prescribe face masks always as said by the President

According to the NPP Communications Director for Suhum Constituency, Mr Augustine Odei, he took his time to keep an eye on their education and observed that the constituents were happy seeing such a swift response team by the MP, Hon Frederick Opare-Ansah for schooling them on the novel disease and what the President is doing in curbing and abating the spread of the disease.

They were also grateful for the provision of Poly Tanks, Alcohol-based hand Sanitizers, Washing Soaps, Rubbing Alcohol, Veronica buckets etc. And even asked for more and entreated the MP not to concede his livelihood support for the communities under his county.

“I also have an engagement with some of the volunteers, they articulated their profound appreciation to the MP, Hon Frederick Opare-Ansah for involving them in his project and pledged to do their viable best to sustain the project in reaching its ultimate goal. They also urged the general public not to gag with the coronavirus since it doesn’t have any political tint, we must as Ghanaian come together and fight till we win”,  the communication Director concluded.
