President Nana Akufo-Addo has advised Ghanaians to learn to live with the coronavirus pandemic since research has proven that the disease will stay much longer.

Akufo-Addo said the COVID-19 outbreak should not be a reason for Ghanaians to put a stop to whatever agenda they have set for development.

Speaking at a meeting with the chiefs and elders of the Anlo Traditional Area of the Volta Region, Akufo-Addo said individuals must take it upon themselves to ensure strict adherence to the various measures outlined by the Ghana Health Service.

He however, reiterated social distancing, not shaking hands, among other practices, are the short to long term solution to stopping the spread of COVID-19.

“We are going through a very difficult time in our country that all of us are aware of. Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that our lives must come to a stop.

The virus is there, but we have to find a way to live with it. Ghana’s business must continue. ,” Akufo-Addo said.

Meanwhile, with regards to the virus not going away, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the coronavirus disease otherwise known as the COVID-19 may never go away.

Speaking at a news briefing on Wednesday, the Emergencies Director for WHO, Dr. Mike Ryan, he said that even if a vaccine is found, controlling the virus will require a “massive effort”.

Dr. Ryan just like HIV which has not gone away after all these years, people have to come to terms with the virus which has already killed many.
