Speaking at the donation ceremony, the Chief Finance Officer of the Enterprise Group, Daniel Larbi-Tieku, said the nature and global spread of the coronavirus call for critical actions and a concerted effort by all in managing and containing the pandemic.
“This is a novel virus that has its tentacles in every part of the world now. Its nature and rate of spread should be the concern of every human being.
“The world requires the support of all in fighting the virus and it is critical that we all contribute to the actions being taken,” he said.
Mr Larbi-Tieku also stated that Enterprise Group is complying with international and national protocols required to help stem the spread of the disease.
He said in the interest of public safety, clients are encouraged to patronize the company’s electronic channels such as the mobile app, USSD portals and also the contact centre for prompt service.
He further urged Ghanaians to keep themselves and others safe by strictly adhering to good personal and respiratory hygiene.
