In an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Parliamentary candidate of the Tema West Constituency of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr. Raphael Sarpong Tuffour, has revealed the blindside of the deadly coronavirus diseases.
According to the doctor on Ahotor FM morning show, the most common symptoms of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are fever, tiredness, and dry cough.
The doctor added that the other blindside that makes the virus deadly is that most of the people do not show the symptoms yet they have the virus and the virus could stay in the air for eight hours although it is not an airborne disease.
“The most common symptoms of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are fever, tiredness, and dry cough but some people don’t show this symptom yet they have the diseases and that makes the virus deadly,” he told the host Citizen Kofi Owusu.
He added that Ghanaians should all try our best to always wash and sanitize our hands, “if you ever want to go out always put on a nose mask to protect you because the virus can stay up to eight hours in the air”.
