Show Images Of COVID-19 Patients To Deter Stubborn Ghanaians - Kwesi Pratt Fumes

Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr., has called on State authorities to televise patients of COVID-19 to serve as deterrent to headstrong Ghanaians.

According to Kwesi Pratt, many Ghanaians do not see the seriousness of the impact of the disease because there is nothing to inject some dose of fear and panic into them.

Speaking to host Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', Kwesi Pratt insisted that showing horrible images of those who have been infected by the disease and are in critical condition will help in the public education on COVID-19.

He believed Ghanaians will appreciate how dangerous the pandemic is to human health and take the precautionary measures to protect themselves when they see how the patients are doing in the various hospitals.

To him, though the government might want to shield the patients because it is unethical, in this case "public safety" should "override the other ethical considerations and so on. If possible, let's televise the critically ill people in the hospitals who are having difficulty with breathing and in severe conditions for people to see the dangers of the disease".
