Un Working Closely With Government Of Ghana To Address Covid

Speaking at a bi-weekly media briefing on Thursday, Ghanaian Minister for Health Kwaku Agyemang-Manu said the country could not keep restrictions in place forever since that is affecting the economy and social life.

The minister said Ghanaians would, therefore, have to learn to live with the pandemic.

“The new coronavirus has come to live with us. It will have nowhere to go, and we have to learn to live with it,” Agyemang-Manu said, adding that there are certain things to do to protect people.

He, therefore, urged citizens to observe the preventive protocols, including wearing of face masks, maintaining social distancing, washing of hands regularly under running water with soap, and using rubbing sanitizers and rubbing alcohol to sanitize hands, while avoiding touching faces with hands.

“We have to learn to live with it and manage ourselves against it,” the minister said.

Ghana’s number of cases increased to 5,530, with 674 recoveries, as of Wednesday morning.

The Minister for Tourism, Barbara Oteng-Gyasi, who also addressed the press briefing, disclosed that measures are put in place to re-open hotels in a limited way. Enditem
