Ghana’s fight against the deadly coronavirus pandemic has yielded tremendous successes as reputed international media outlets have even started hailing the country for adopting strategies that have yielded results even the US, UK, and Russia have been struggling to get.

Ghana’s current case stands at 5,735 infections with 29 people succumbing to the disease. Though the rate at which reported infected cases of the virus has been very slow, the recoveries, on the other hand, have been impressive.

Ghana has recorded 1,754 recoveries, a number that has been hailed by well-meaning Ghanaians. While this news has gladdened the hearts of many Ghanaians and even the World Health Organization, some political elements within the opposition National Democratic Congress have been casting doubts on this figure.

Joyce Bawah Mogtari, an aide to the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress and Kojo Adu-Asare, a former Member of Parliament for Adentan, have not only raised eyebrows about the huge numbers of recoveries but have also displayed a yearning for more people to die out of COVID-19.

The aide to the former President, Joyce Bawah Mogtari, in a tweet could not bring herself to accept the fact that 790 more people had recovered overnight and asked for the figure to be probed.

On his part, Kojo Adu-Asare said even the number of infected cases was artificially manufactured by the government to win the heart of the IMF so as to receive a relief package from the international financial outfit.

In effect, these political actors are questioning the recovery numbers but not the rate of infections. They do not seem to believe it but also wish that more people would be reported to have died as a result of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.

From these statements and other comments from some top officials aligned to the opposition NDC, one gets the sense that people dying for them to garner some political advantages are far more important to them than people recovering from the deadly virus.

The love for the country and its citizens should supersede the gains to be made politically, and this is something the NDC should do well to inculcate in its members.
