President Akufo-Addo has until further notice prohibited funerals, weddings , parties and concerts from taking place in order to halt the spread of the new novel, Covid-19.
In its 23rd address to the nation on government steps to restrict the spread of the latest coronavirus, said private burials should not exceed 25 people.
“Private burials with no more than 25 people can take place with the enforcement of the social distancing, hygiene and mask wearing protocols”, he stated.
He said that the situation in the country has changed from 200 to 700 cases a day compared to two weeks ago.
“In effect, fellow Ghanaians, we have a lot of work to do in coming to grips with the disease.
“The imposition of restrictions in our daily routines helped in reducing the prevalence of the pandemic in the country, and government has been left with no option but to re-introduce some of these restrictions in order to help save the situation,” he said.
President Akufo-Addo said beaches, night clubs, cinemas, and pubs continue to be shut.
