Rejoinder: COVID -19: PharmSaG -Wa Polytechnic Declares Alternatives as Possible cure for Coronovirus
We write to respond to the above news item published by Upperwestmedia.net, on 19th March, 2020.
Management wishes to unequivocally state that, the Polytechnic and the Pharmaceutical Science Department has not sanctioned any research to find a cure to Corona virus. The Pharmaceutical Science Students Association of Ghana, Wa Polytechnic chapter is equally shocked about the story circulating on social media.
The Pharmaceutical Science Department of Wa Polytechnic however, has the capacity to produce affordable hand sanitizers.
In line with the directive of the President of the Republic of Ghana His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, the Polytechnic was closed down on 16th March,2020. All lectures, clinicals, practicals and gatherings on campus have since been suspended.
Whilst we entreat the general public to disregard the story, we are humbly requesting Upperwestmedia.net to do the needful by retracting the story.
It is our fervent hope that subsequently, Upperwestmedia.net will cross check from the Polytechnic before going ahead to publish stories relating to the Polytechnic, in line with best practices.
