Ghana and Amiens SC defender Nicholas Opoku has joined the Ghana Football Association’s campaign against Covid-19 by sharing a message of hope and encourage to Ghanaians and the world at large.
Opoku is the latest in a league of stars to team up with the GFA to embark on this advocacy initiative to create and heighten awareness about the deadly and highly infectious novel Corona Virus.
Already Ghanaian internationals like Thomas Partey, Kassim Adams, Richard Ofori, Andy Yiadom, Baba Abdul Rahman and others have participated in this advocacy campaign.
The campaign dubbed #KickitOut also aims at sharing tips and practices that can keep one from getting infected.
The Novel Corona Virus has taken the world aback with the death rate now above 14,000. Ghana has so far recorded 21 cases of Covid-19 in the last 11 days with contact tracing exceeding 400. The situation is worse in France where Opoku plays his club football.
The impact of the disease has led to almost all sporting events and other activities coming to a standstill.
The Ghana government has put in place several measures to help curb the spread of the virus to prevent an outbreak and also declared Wednesday March 25, a national day of fasting and prayer.
Nicholas Opoku in a video shared on the GFA twitter handle shares some safety tips and also shares a message of hope to Ghanaians particularly infected persons.
