It has been established that all of Ghana’s immediate neighbours (Togo, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast), have recorded some confirmed cases of Coronavirus infections, Italian Coronavirus death toll climbed by 196 to 827 in 24 hours and in China almost 4000 deaths has been recorded.
His Excellency The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has tasked his ministers to desist from all foreign travels except the most critical ones, until there is an approved vaccine for curing the CODVID-19 pandemic. His Excellency has also directed the finance minister to release a fund equivalent to $100 million to enhance our preparedness and preventive measures for the disease. This will enhance the expansion of facilities and infrastructure for preventing the Corona virus disease.
His Excellency The President has call on all citizens and non citizens to follow rules at all entry points into the country because preventive measures has been put in place at those points for all entering into the country to abide by and Ghana is well placed to minimise economic impact of the coronavirus. The most exciting part of our preventive measures is when a British cabin crew member rates Ghana’s surveillance at KIA to that of Heathrow.
His Excellency The President needs great commendation for such preventive measures and it is a sign that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is really a type who care about the safety of the citizenry.
