Girls club in Nanumba re-sensitize on the COVID 19 Safety protocol adherence.
The noble corona virus continues to be a threat in the socio- economic development of every nation. Realizing its negative impact on the education of the girl child, girls club member in Nanumba organized re-sensitization on the need for every student to strictly adhere to the safety protocol of the noble corona virus. The leadership took their members through practical application of some of the protocols. Aisha, 13 years old girls club president of kassimiya Islamic primary school told her colleagues not to downplay the existence of the virus especially the new variant that has been discovered. The sensitisation also touched on some misinformation that is going rounds about the vaccine that goverment has procured to vaccinate Ghanainas saying it causes infertility problems and so people must not put themselves out to be vaccinated. The sensititation educated participants to disregard these kinds of information as untrue and unfounded.
She said even though the rate of infection has reduce and the number of recoveries cases has increase, Ghana still battle with one thousand one hundred and fifteen cases (1115) as at 14th June 2021. She encourage her colleagues to continues washing their hands under running water with soap, practice social distancing, use nose mask, and always visit hospital any time they experience unusual sign and symptoms in their body. A total of one thousand two hundred and twenty –five girls in Nanumba took part in this exercise. Aisha has this to tell her colleagues in their meeting.
“The noble corona virus has affected our education seriously and that everyone needs to take extra caution in order not to be second victims of this pandemic. When you get yourself infected with this virus as a student, you are most likely to be isolated from family and friends for number days. This may have negative impact on your academic, since many of our instructional hours has already been wasted by the virus due to closure of school and other institutions and business. I therefore urge all girl club members to strictly wash their hands with soap under running water, use nose mask at open and crowded places, practice social distances and avoid shaking hands with people”
Aisha, after explaining every safety protocol, always demonstrates for her colleagues to have better understanding for proper adoption and practicing in school and at home.
