The Minister for Education Hon Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh -Napo who recovered from Coronavirus has launched a campaign against stigmatization of COVID-19 recoreved persons.
The Minister said the people who recorever should be encouraged to share their stories and not be stigmatized .
As a society, we must do more to avoid stigmatising those who contract and recover from the dreadful Covid-19 virus.
Those who survive it have a story to tell, and it is not a pretty one. We must not make it worse for them by stigmatising and then ostracising them.
Together, let us fight not only the disease, but the negative social stereotypes around it.
I am proud of my team at the Ministry of Education. Some of us contracted COVID-19.
Thank God we beat it.
Today, we say No to Stigmatisation.
