President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo later today at 8:00 pm will address the nation on measures put in place by the Government of Ghana (GoG) to slow the sudden surge of novel coronavirus cases in the country.
In a recent press briefing monitored by EducationWeb.com.gh, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS) disclosed the novel coronavirus has been recorded in some Senior High Schools (SHS) in Ashanti Region.
The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) attributing the rise in the cases of the virus to the total disregard of the Covid safety protocols said available data suggests that the country is witnessing its third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Dr Justice Yankson, the General Secretary of the Medical Association speaking to Newsfile on Saturday said facilities responsible for managing Covid-19 cases are getting choked with infected victims.
“If you look at one of our foremost places for case management, the Ghana Infectious Diseases Centre (GIDC), it is getting choked, the statistics show the wave is here with us. We haven’t reached its peak but it’s here with us,” he stated.
Today July 25, 2021, will be the 26th time His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has addressed the Republic of Ghana since the unexpected outbreak of the global coronavirus pandemic early this year in the country.
Unfortunately, 821 citizens according to the Ghana Health Service (GHS) have died of the locally transmitted coronavirus since the outbreak in 2020. Current active cases of July 25 stands at 4,094 with 423 new cases.
