Dear GhanaWeb reader,
We are happy to announce that we have increased the frequency for our newsletter to twice a week - Monday and Thursday. This decision was made to meet your demand for updates on the topical news in Ghana as we approach the election season.
Coronavirus is still with us and the number of cases are increasing. Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo indicates that the disease is under control as Ghana is performing well in managing the pandemic.
“I am, thus, in no way suggesting that we should let our guard down, and throw out of the window the efforts we have made in bringing us this far, where we have become a reference point for many in the handling of this pandemic,” Akufo-Addo said on Sunday night.
“Leaving our homes without a face mask or face covering on is an offence. The Police have been instructed to enforce this directive, which is the subject of an Executive Instrument… Let me repeat: our survival is in our own hands. If we are lax and inattentive, we will continue to have serious challenges with the virus. If we are mindful and self-disciplined, we have it in us to defeat this pandemic and help return our lives to normalcy,” he warned.
