Dear GhanaWeb reader,
Ghana’s active coronavirus cases have dropped to 499 with the number of deaths standing at 297. The cumulative figure of total infections has reached 45,877, according to the latest figures released by the Ghana Health Service (GHS) on Saturday.
We are winning the fight against this dreaded virus but the war goes on. As President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has directed in his 17th address on Sunday, wearing of the face mask is compulsory until December 14, 2020.
Meanwhile, political campaigns are heightening with little respect for the coronavirus directives by all political parties seeking election. The police have turned a blind eye to the violations of politicians but have halted planned gatherings and marches by Ghanaian citizens who seek redress from the same politicians. An action that has questioned the real allegiance of the Ghanaian security service: the people or the politicians?
This week has also witnessed a series of fatal accidents that have claimed the lives of nearly a hundred Ghanaians amid the Okada (commercial motorbike) legalization debate.
Many factors constitute road safety. They include the quality of roads and vehicles; effectiveness of road regulations; road signs and street lights among others. Observing a holistic approach to improving safety on Ghana’s roads will be more prudent than picking just an aspect to make policy decisions.
The Third Wave of the Ghana Election Poll is ongoing as we release in piecemeal results of the Second Wave of the poll. Click here to take part in the Third Wave of the Ghana Election Poll.
