Red Star Belgrade forward Richmond Boakye-Yiadom has given a word of advise to Ghanaians to follow the safety measures given out by government and health officials during the country's battle with coronavirus.

Ghana has recorded 52 cases with two people confirmed dead as at Tuesday 24th March, 2020.

All football-related activities including the Ghana Premier League have also been suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The Ghana Football Association has also directed all football clubs to suspend training until further notice.

Boakye-Yiadom advised Ghanaians to take the preventive measures very seriously to avoid the spread of the Covid-19.

“I will advise everybody back home, to adhere to the directives given out by the President Nana Akufo-Addo. Let’s all protect ourselves so that we can enjoy football when this is over”.

He also revealed that he has been indoors during this difficult period.

“I have been indoors for more than a week and just watching movies and playing video games. The team has given us a program to work with whilst we stay at home."

“I miss game already and I wish this coronavirus will end so we go back on the pitch and start playing."

"It’s really scary the way people are dying in Europe and I will entreat everybody to take good care of himself”.

Boakye-Yiadom was selected among the 23-man squad for Ghana’s doubleheader against Sudan for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations which has been postponed.
