An Adviser to the National COVID-19 Response Team, Dr. Ama Kyerewaa Edwin has advised Ghanaians to avoid touching their mouth, eyes and nose forming the acronym 'MEN' to help protect them from contracting the disease.
She said this will help to a great extent as it will protect people from contracting the disease.
She said this is one of the best practices aside regular hand washing and using alcohol-based sanitizers.
She also advised Ghanaians to be circumspect and verify information they acquire before quickly forwarding on social media.
She said the phenomenon of forwarding unverified information was tantamount to attesting to what was being spread.
At the press briefing, on April 14, 2020, it was announced that some 17 persons have fully recovered with 66 others waiting to do a second test to confirm their status after undergoing all necessary treatment.
Ghana has so far recorded 566 cases with 8 deaths but a number of persons who tested positive are responding to treatment well.
