Those Calling for Closure of Schools are Cowards – Health Minister Fires

According to him, the current number of cases does not call for a shutdown as it can be controlled.

“Closing down schools is defeatist and a cowardly person’s approach to solving problems,” the minister told journalists after touring some hospital projects in the Ashanti region.

“When we are confronted with problems, we don’t go back and say we have withdrawn but fight and overcome them. Look elsewhere especially, America where the numbers are huge but they are opening schools,” he added.

He explained that no one knows when the virus will end therefore closing down schools won’t be the best decision.

“We will fight the disease and do things that would solve the challenges that we have to protect the children. We all care about them because some of us have kids in the senior high schools,” he assured.
