Italy based Black Stars Midfielder, Emmanuel Agyeman Badu has expressed concern about how Ghana is handling the global outbreak of CONVID 19 pandemic
Emmanuel Agyeman Badu, who is based in the Italian City of Verona, has been in self quarantine for a week now, following the directive by the Italian government.
Speaking to Angel FM, he said:
“I think as Ghanaians we joke a lot with very serious issues. I have been reading on social media how people are circulating fake news and playing with it,” Badu said on Angel FM.
“This is how Italians started with it and now the whole country is at standstill.
“It is never true that coronavirus doesn’t infect black people. As I speak, two black footballers have contracted it in Italy. Myself, I have been placed under self-isolation because my club faced a club that’s got 8 players testing positive.
“If I need anything, you just have to put on club WhatsApp page so that club physio will buy for you.
“For one week now, I’m in the house alone and even the team physio who buys me groceries is not allowed to get in contact with me. He just places them at my doorstep and disappears. It is a very scary and sad situation here.”
The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo has since placed a ban on all social gatherings in the wake of the spread of the pandemic with 6 cases recorded in Ghana already.
