As Ghanaians eagerly await the arrival of the government’s procured COVID-19 vaccines in late March, it has emerged that management of Despite Media conglomerate have gone ahead to procure vaccines purposely for its staff.
According to Ghanaweb, this was revealed by Afia Pokua, an anchor and political show host at UTV in a Facebook post.
Her revelation was borne out of her resolve to dissuade perceptions that the management and staff of UTV have not been adhering to the safety protocols on the coronavirus.
Sammy Darko, a private legal practitioner had raised an argument to the effect which prompted a reaction from Afia Pokuaa.
She disclosed that the media has also been testing its staff and instituted other measures to prevent the spread of the virus within their premises.
“TheSammy Darko Counsel you keep refusing to hear me. We test as well. We are even procuring vaccines for the staff that will arrive soon. My point is we physically distance the guests in the studio so that droplets don’t fall on any person.”
