Artiste Manager, Nana Asiamah Hanson widely known as Bulldog has advocated for the passage of a law that makes regular washing of hands mandatory.
This, he believes will maintain in Ghanaians, the habit of practising good hygiene even after the coronavirus outbreak.
Speaking in an interview with Actress and Television show host, Nana Ama Mcbrown, Bulldog said he believes the COVID-19 pandemic is trying to teach Ghanaians and the world as a whole, the important lessons of regular hand washing and the use of hand sanitizers.
“I think this outbreak is trying to teach us some very important lessons like the regular washing of our hands. I honestly wish the President could make it into law. When I was a kid, my mother used to always tell us to cover our mouth when we coughed in public, she would even get angry when we buy food from outside and eat it there so I think it is time we take sanitation very seriously,” he indicated.
Ghana has recorded 21 cases of the COVID-19 and a casualty in less than 14 days. Even though the country’s situation is relatively less dangerous than statistics in other African countries such as Egypt, South Africa, and Algeria, many Ghanaians remain worried about the spread of the virus.
As a result, majority of Ghanaians are following religiously, the prescribed preventive measures such as regular handwashing under running water and the frequent use of hand sanitizers.
To Bulldog, this is a lesson that we must carry along and make sure they become part of our daily lives.
“I hope that lesson that we should keep ourselves clean, wash our hands all the time, sanitizers should be a common thing, we should replace the use of handkerchiefs with hand sanitizers. I hope we will take this lesson along,” he noted.
Adding to Bulldog’s comment, the host of United Showbiz said she strongly believes that by the time COVID-19 will leave the world, our way of life and our mindsets as Ghanaians would have changed completely.
“I believe that by the time this virus leaves the world, it would have reset the way we do a lot of things as Ghanaians,” she said.
