President Nana Akufo-Addo has called on Ghanaians to keep adhering to the safety protocols of COVID-19.
Addressing the nation in his 19th COVID-19 update, he said Ghanaians seems to let their guard down and now is even the time to wear the nose masks, hand washing, social distancing and sanitizing.
“Our observation, however, is that a reduction in compliance with the preventive protocols account for the increase in infections. Fellow Ghanaians, it appears that we are letting our guards down. Now more than ever we have to adhere to mask-wearing, handwashing, use of sanitizers and social distancing protocols“ the President said.
He also warned of the harsher sanctions will be meted out to people who flaunt the law.
“In order to help arrest this new threat of rising infections, Government is going to reaffirm the steps that have served us well so far. We are enhancing the measures of tracing, testing and treatment, i.e. the 3Ts. In addition to this, we will continue to limit the importation of the virus, embark on the strategic, controlled easing of public gatherings, enhance public education and information, and continue to provide relief and support to individuals, families and businesses” the President noted
Ghana’s active cases is 1.139 and 320 people have died.
