Funerals Not Spreading Covid-19, Parties Are – Gov’t Monitoring Reveals

An ongoing monitoring exercise by the government shows that most people who are getting the COVID- 19 or the new variant did not get it from attending funerals, the Presidential Advisor on Health, Dr. Anthony Nsiah Asare, has said

Dr Nsia Asare revealed that the government’s monitoring indicates that COVID-19 patients did not get the virus from funerals.

“From what we are seeing from our monitoring most of these people who are getting sick are not from the funerals; I think you haven’t seen that yet?. We know because the sick people go to the hospitals they ask them questions. Am a doctor too so when you come I ask you the history. The history is that it is not from the outdoor funerals where people go to; it is not from the outdoor parties they go to, it is from the after funeral celebrations”.

He further stressed “Now after funeral, there is a buffet: We go and do party; When you are eating you will remove your mask; And then when you want to talk to somebody you go near the person, you are not wearing masks and then you are eating and drinking and getting choked with cough. So please when we are doing this communication let’s make this distinction clear. All those who got sick from January, February, and March were from one after event celebration”.

He said this on the Sunrise Morning show on 3FM which was monitored by this media
