In the last ten weeks, Ghana has recorded 36 new deaths relating to COVID-19 raising Ghana’s death toll to eight hundred and nineteen (819) since the onset of the pandemic.

In his address to the nation, President Nana Addo reminded Ghanaians that the law ensuring the wearing of nose masks is in force and called on everyone to adhere strictly to the protocols.

Public transport operators, businesses, churches, and mosques have all been charged to ensure strict adherence to the covid-19 protocols.

Covid-19 Delta Variant cases are on the rise in Ghana and this is alarming according to the President. He added that Ghana cannot afford to go back to the old stricter enforcement and partial lockdowns.

“We cannot afford to return to the days of partial lockdowns, which brought considerable hardships and difficulties for all of us.” He stated.

To ensure Ghana does not go back to partial lockdown, he called on all Ghanaians to follow and observe the safety protocols.

“Fortunately for us, we have tried and tested response protocols which we have implemented since March 2020. They have stood us in good stead, and we have no choice but to return to the strict implementation of some of them.”
