The president of Ghana, Nana Addo encouraged all Ghanaians Ghanaians to use face masks wherever they go.
This would reduce the risk and the rate of the transmission of the virus amongst people. The president said this in his 7th address to the nation on Sunday evening.
“Like the World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently advised, I want to encourage you to wear a mask wherever you go, as it will help you not to contract the virus, and keep it clean. If you own a business or are providing a service, i.e. a barber, a hairdresser, a tailor, a taxi driver, a trotro driver and his ‘mate’, a shop keeper, a food seller, please do well to use a mask. The Ministry of Health will very soon issue guidelines on face masks for public use”. he said.
Meanwhile, the president has lifted the lockdown he imposed on Greater Kumasi, Greater Accra, and Kasoa.
