Ghana’s Coronavirus case count has reached 5530 with 24 deaths and 674 recoveries.
The new 122 cases were made known by Dr. Badu Sarkodie (Director of Public Health) at the Ghana Health Service (GHS), at the Information Ministry’s media briefing session on the Coronavirus situation in the country a few hours ago.
As a new directive, the Health Minister, Hon. Kwaku Agyemang Manu announced that the authorities will have no option than to arrest persons who fail to follow sane precautionary measures like wearing of the nose masks.
“They (the safety protocols) are not difficult to do so I don’t understand why some of us do not do these things. We have been thinking about what to do next to enforce strict compliance with these basic guidelines, we are working on that and believe very soon we will see the police arresting some of us who are becoming too recalcitrant.”
