The Danger in sharing cooked meals to the public, a thought that must be reconsidered in the interest of public health and safety.

My personal observation and candid opinion, I humbly submit to the authorities that as soon as possible all cooked meals distribution must stopped as a matter of safety and security of the public.
Government in its wisdom has proffer solution to the less privileged in the society since the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country.

Among such solutions is provision of food for the downtrodden. For two weeks now the practice has gone on in various quarters of the lock-down areas with the main purpose of alleviating people who are less privileged from staving or hunger.

The idea appears very noble with sense of nostalgia and many hands have joined in that action.

Much as it appears noble and very supportive, I see the inherent danger should anything unfortunately goes bad in the course of cooking or in preparation of such meals.

We must as a matter of public safety and security advice all groups and individuals with the spirit of benevolence to support the needy, to desist from the sharing of cooked meals to the public.

I have expected the public health authorities to as a matter of health called all such groups and individuals engaged in sharing cooked foods to the public to go by strict standards or refrain from such activity.

There is a huge danger in that and as a nation and people we must not wait until misfortune set in. Preferably all food items must be distributed at its raw stage such that the beneficiaries can do their own cooking per their household standards.
We must all realize that as humans we do not have the same level of trust and sincerity.

If we think providing the foodstuffs at it raw stage is too expensive, we must know also that human lives are more expensive and must not be toiled with. For all intents and purposes we must ensure that after the fight against COVID-19 we must not invite another from of pandemic on ourselves.

The authorities must rethink of the idea of mass cooking and distribution of food to the public and consider first the public health and safety.

Signed.

Ghanaian actress Nana Ama McBrown has responded to the claims by some Ghanaians that she is the one in the trending video which a lady was seen knocking Ex President Mahama on the head in live video conversation on COVID-19 last Thursday.

The NDC has taking the trending video as an insult to their flag bearer.

Some of the party social media communicators have started a campaign of boycotting Hisense products of which Nana Ama is an ambassador.

In a respond to the claims, the actress has released the disclaimer below to distance her self from the said video.

My attention has been drawn to a video circulating on various social media platforms in which a female figure, which some claim erroneously and strangely to be me, can be seen under the cloak of darkness, knocking the head of the image of Former President John Mahama on the screen of a TV during his Digital Conversation with Ghanaians last Thursday.

I hereby distance myself from that video and unequivocally state that I am not the woman in the video, and there is no way will I ever behave in such a reprehensible manner towards the Former President of Ghana whom I hold in high respect, or indeed any other person.

By way of emphasis, I would like to entreat the general public, the media and most importantly my fans to disregard it.
