Communication Minister, Ursula Owusu Ekuful has revealed that her husband has been in self-quarantine after he returned from the UK two days.
Due to the isolation, she revealed the family has had to develop eccentric methods of communication with him in order to ensure that he does not spread the dreaded corona virus infection to the family if he turns out to be infected.
“We leave his food at the door. If we want to talk to him, we stand at a safe distance away and talk to him, we wave him, he’s okay”, Mrs. Ekuful told Joy News.
According to her, the new development leaves the family in difficulty but said the isolation is imperative.
The UK is one of the severely hit countries grappling with the dreaded corona virus with some 676 confirmed infections.
Describing her husband’s self-isolation, Ursula Owusu said, “it is necessary if we want the COVID-19 pandemic to end. He can’t chat with the kids or sit in the living room you can’t sit in our living room. It is like a self-imposed house arrest.
“But he is fine, and he understands why he has to do that and it took some getting used to initially.”
She entreated citizens, particularly those who have returned from COVID-19 hit countries and people who have come in contact with them, to undergo self-quarantine.
“Protect your family, your community by going into self-isolation. If within a reasonable period of time you are not showing symptoms you can go out there and just be normal.
“But right now like the President said, ‘these are not ordinary times’ that is why we need to take these drastic measures to protect ourselves.”
