Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo -Addo, the president of the Republic of Ghana has said that, the ban on weddings, parties, concert has been re-enforced until further notice. The president made this statement in his 23rd address to the nation on measures government is taking to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, said private burials should not exceed 25 people.
”In effect, fellow Ghanaians, we have a lot of work to do in coming to grips with the disease.”
“The imposition of restrictions on our daily routines helped in reducing the prevalence of the pandemic in the country, and government has been left with no option but to re-introduce some of these restrictions in order to help save the situation,” he said.
“So, until further notice, funerals, weddings, concerts, theatrical performances, and parties are banned. Private burials, with no more than 25 people, can take place, with the enforcement of the social distancing, hygiene and mask-wearing protocols.” Mr. President then included that, beaches, pub and nightclubs still remains closed. He said the situation in the country is getting dire as the daily infection has moved from 200 to 700 cases. The Ghana medical Association then said there will be strike when government refuse to place ban parties, and social gathering hence it is like a dream come true for the Ghana Medical Association as government then pose ban on such gatherings
”The issue is very simple, and we can only advice, and we can only advocate. The worst-case scenario is that we put our tools down but that might not be the solution for this pandemic because we don’t control the public purse, we don’t control the executive power. So we keep advising government,” he said.
