Ghanaian triple jumper, Nadia Eke, has urged Ghanaians to fully respect health guidelines and directives concerning Coronavirus in order to stop the spread of the disease.
The Coronavirus pandemic has affected the globe and several major sporting activities have been postponed and put away due to concerns.
The European Championships and Olympic Games slated for this year will be held in 2021 due to the disease.
Eke, who will represent Ghana in the Olympics Games, spoke to Citi Sports via a video on Tuesday and asked Ghanaians to do all they could to fight the pandemic.
“My team mates and I, who were looking forward to going to Japan this year for the Olympic Games are disappointed that the Games have been postponed. That being said, I think that, as a community, we need to stand by each other and take care of each other and ourselves.
What this means is that you have to do your part and follow the precautions to make sure that you are a being a team player in the fight against this virus. The virus will not fight itself and we have to do our part and stand by each other.
As people can see (from the video), I am staying home and hopefully, we can all get back to our lives as we envisioned very soon.”
Eke and Joseph Paul Amoah had booked places in the Games and they were set to represent Ghana in the triple jump and 100m and 200m events respectively.
