As President Akufo Addo plans to gradually ease coronavirus restrictions, many Ghanaians are feeling hopeful that life may soon return to normal — or some new version of that.

But this would only work when everyone continues to follow the laid down protocols of social distancing rules, wearing of face masks and maintaining personal hygiene, the President of Ghana Medical Association, Dr Frank Ankobea has reiterated.

Speaking on SilverFM's afternoon political show dubbed 'Ghana Ho Nkomo’ hosted by Lovin Cee, the President of the Association expressed dismay about the surge in the cases of coronavirus in Ghana, alluding it to uncooperative attitude of some Ghanaians towards the enhanced measures to combat the spread of the covid 19.

''The figures show a surge in the number of covid 19 cases and we should ask ourselves why....’’

''Lots of frontline health workers are getting infected whiles some are being asked to self-quarantine over exposure to the virus’’

''We have been advocating the adherence to the protocols of social distancing, hand washing and wearing of nose masks but some Ghanaians have refused to abide by these measures to combat the spread ''

''We do not have any specific treatment readily available for the pandemic and so Ghanaians should adhere to these measures to combat the pandemic’’

''In my view some Ghanaians think easing of some covid 19 restrictions by the President mean that the pandemic is over....some of us are being recalcitrant’’he fumed.

Dr Ankobea indicated that the surge in cases relatively increases the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPEs), which according to him are consumable.
He therefore appealed to the government to provide more PPEs while urging the public to abide by the directives to combat the spread of the virus and to reduce the pressure on the usage of PPEs.

President Nana Addo Dankwa AKufo-Addo lifted the partial lockdown announced some weeks ago to restrict movements in the Greater Accra Region, Kasoa in the Central Region and Kumasi and its peri-urban communities in the Ashanti Region as part of measures to stem the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The President, in a televised address to the nation last Sunday announced appropriate measures put in place to gradually ease some more restrictions to control the spread of the virus.

"Lifting the restrictions does not mean we are letting our guards down," he said, adding that the security services should be on standby to check the adherence to mandatory wearing of nose masks.

Dr Frank Ankobea however advised the public not to use the wearing nose masks as alternative for other covid 19 protocols – regular hand washing and social distancing rule.
