The Ghana Health Service has called on Ghanaians to voluntarily abide by the protective measures against COVID-19 to help ease the infection rate.
Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye speaking in an interview on Accra based Starr FM, said cases in Ghana are on the rise but not at an alarming rate.
“We have an increasing number but it’s not an alarming figure and we are hoping to contain the situation as it is now. As we speak now, a thousand three hundred and something people are carrying the virus.
“But now, the figures are slightly lower and we are hoping that the figures drop but that will depend on what we do. The disease has a two-week cycle and during the yuletide, we kept asking people to abide by the protocols but that wasn’t the case.
“People are not adhering to the protocols but we are pleading with them to wear their masks (which is very important). We are also urging the media to educate people on wearing the mask.”
Dr. Kuma-Aboagye also dismissed reports that the country faces an imminent total lockdown if cases continue to rise.
As of today, the country has 1,404 active cases, 175 new cases, 56,981 confirmed cases, 55,236 recoveries/discharge while 341 persons have died in the process, according to data from the Ghana Health Service.
