I thank God for your lives and also tap you on the back for being on the frontlines making sure Social distancing is adhered to in vehicles, market places etc.
Company, you know what, civilians may see you and try to run or devise other means to answer your probing questions as to why they can’t stay home, but the coronavirus isn’t scared of that uniform!
The uniform only gives you an identity but it doesn’t work as a PPE; so please ‘perform magic’ to stay alive for us and the family.
Few days ago, I was at KATH and a High Fever patient came out threatening Doctors, we could’ve helped hold him down, but I told my colleagues not without surgical gloves!
Some Doctors got themselves gloves before coming to take him in. We are all at risk.
Company, don’t touch ID cards with your bare hands, don’t take vehicular documents without gloves, stop talking to drivers and passengers without a nose mask!!
Now, when you’re detailed to control crowd, senior; maintain some distance for you aren’t a cyborg that is immune to a virus.
Listening to some international news, I hear Jihadists are asking their people who have tested positive to cough on officers! Yes, that’s how scary the thing is getting.
Please, don’t forget to practice social distancing in the operational vehicles.
Gentlemen, we always sacrifice but these are not normal times to loose guard.
Ghana needs you… Your Service needs you… Your family loves you.
