He affirmed the RCC’s resolve to ensure the enforcement of the government’s health protocols instituted to mitigate the devastating effects of COVID-19, especially the mandatory wearing of nose masks and social distancing.

“It is compulsory for all and sundry to wear the nosemasks at public places. We must obey this instruction at all times for our own safety,” Mr Osei-Mensah told the Ghana News Agency (GNA)on the sideines of the event.

Dr. Emmanuel Tenkorang, Ashanti Regional Director of Health Services, asked the media to feature prominently on their programmes educational issues relating to the pandemic.
