However, some news portals like Sky News labelled Ghana as one of the world’s poorest countries in their publication.
After many Ghanaians sighted on the report and being tagged as a poorer country, they took to their social media platforms to react.
Some netizens blasted them asking if they understand the relevance of their publication while others also accepted that because Ghana still go for assistance from them, it should be understandable.
Their caption reads: “A flight carrying 600,000 doses of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine has arrived in Ghana as part of a global effort to immunise the world’s poorest people.”
Also, one Family Law Solicitor, Collaborative Lawyer and Arbitrator working in Hampshire, West Sussex and Surrey called an African country that received it’s covid-19 vaccine a “poorer country”, well defintely he was also referring to Ghana.
He wrote “#Covid: WHO scheme #Covax delivers first #vaccines to poorer countries“
Ghanaians on Twitter have fired at the media company, telling them that they deserve to be referred to with a much respectable word and not calling them ‘poorest people’.
