Entertainment of Saturday, 14 March 2020
Ghana has recorded two cases of Corona Virus and tensions have risen in the country amidst fear of the spread of the pandemic.
In this pursuit, Medikal has stepped out wearing a nose mask. The Ghanaian rapper shared the photo of himself in car, with the mask on and wrote: “Never try touch mandem”.
However, according to the World Health Organisation, wearing the nose mask cannot protect one against the coronavirus. The Organisation advises that a healthy person should wear a mask “only if you are taking care of a person with suspected coronavirus infection.”
The WHO also notes that masks should only be worn “if you are coughing or sneezing.” Also, the WHO states, that should one decide to wear a mask, “you must know how to use it and dispose of it properly.”
