"I urge all of you my fellow Ghanaians to continue to comply with strict hygiene, mask-wearing and social distancing protocols that has become part of our daily routine, this is the surest way by which we can defeat the virus and avoid a second wave of infection."
President Akufo-Addo made this statement during his 18th COVID-19 address to the nation on measures to combat the spread against the COVID 19 pandemic.
He said it is of paramount interest that each person protects themselves and follow all the laid down protocols to help avoid the second wave of infection.
The number of COVID 19 active cases,according to the President has declined further to 398, with 46,664 persons fully recovered from the virus, putting our recovery rate at 98.5%.
''Thirteen (13) more deaths have occurred bringing the total number of deaths, tragically to 310, out of the total number of 510,074 persons tested. The rate of death 0.5% continues to remain very low"
The President assured Ghanaians that the government will continue to work tirelessly to ensure citizens are protected from the deadly virus.
Active cases in Ghana has dropped significantly and that is a good sign.
The second wave of infections that is engulfing so many countries of Europe and America have resulted in the countries going back to lockdown periods.
