Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson is embarking on a “Rock Your Mask” campaign to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease in Ghana.
President Akufo-Addo in his seventh address to the nation, on April 19, 2020, announced compulsory wearing of face masks as the government intensifies the fight against deadly novel coronavirus.
“As the World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently advised, I want to encourage you to wear a mask wherever you go, as it will help you not to contract the virus, and keep it clean. If you own a business, or are providing a service, that is a barber, a hairdresser, a tailor, a taxi driver, a trotro driver and his ‘mate’, a shop keeper, a food seller, please do well to use a mask. The Ministry of Health will very soon issue guidelines on face masks for public use,” the President said in his speech.
The award-winning actress, who has been vocal since the detection of the two cases of the virus in Ghana, shared a campaign poster on her social media with the caption:
