The Ghana Medical Association has advised government against lifting of Ban on Social Gatherings for religious activities, schools, marriage ceremonies, funerals etc.
This advise follows fears being expressed by Ghanaians and medical professionals towards the number of new COVID-19 positive cases being recorded in the country, mostly through community spread.
According to the GMA, it has taken note of the seeming disregard for all the preventive measure by large sections of the population and suggested that Government strictly enforce all preventive measure put in place to ensure compliance.
The Medical Professionals also called on government to ensure prompt and continues distribution of Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) to all Health workers at all times.
The statement from the GMA also admonished all Medical and health professionals to continue to dedicate themselves to the fight in the interest of the country, in spite of the huge sacrifices being made.
Ghana’s case count currently stands at 4,263 with recovery of 376 people and 22 deaths.
