The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has asked the government to place restrictions on social activities such as parties, church service and funerals following the increasing number of the coronavirus cases.

Last year, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo placed restrictions on movement of persons in some parts of the country to contain the virus. But the President lifted the restrictions after he said it was safe to do so.

The GMA has said in a statement on Monday January 25, 2020 that he should reintroduce the restrictions following the surge in the cases.

 “The government should as a matter of urgency restrict social activities such as parties. Church services, funerals, clubs and other social gatherings of such nature.

“The market should be regulated and as much as possible restricted,” the GMA’s statement signed by its President Dr Frank Ankobea and General Secretary, Dr Justice Yankson said among other things.
