The President, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has said that it is clear from the data released by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) on the Covid-19 pandemic that “we have let our guard down, with many going about their normal daily duties in clear breach and disregard for the protocols.”
Addressing the nation on Sunday, July 25 2021, he said at a time when the economy is on the rebound, and business activities picking up, “we must do everything possible to contain this outbreak.
“We cannot afford to return to the days of partial lockdowns, which brought considerable hardships and difficulties for all of us.”
He added “You returned me to office in the elections of 7th December with a clear and decisive mandate to protect lives and livelihoods, and steer our nation out the grips of the pandemic, and onto a path of sustained economic growth and progress. 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.
