The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has cautioned all event organizers to avoid the collocation of indoor events ahead of Christmas to aid in reducing the Covid 19 rising numbers.
Class FM shared a statement by the Director of Public Health at Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Asiedu Bekoeform this afternoon;
As cited from CLass FM, “Dr. Asiedu Bekoe told Iddrissu Awudu, host of the Ghana Yensom morning show on Accra 100.5 FM on Thursday, December 23, 2021, that the decision to halt all in-door events as well as some church events were part of the measures to contain the spread of the deadly Coronavirus pandemic, especially during the yuletide. “
To help save the growing number of Covid-19 cases, he stated that all gatherings must be conducted outside. He reiterated the GHS numbers, stating that the new variant’s identification had resulted in an increase in Ghana’s case count during the last three weeks.
“Our case count which hitherto was 10 a day is now rising to 20 to 30 cases a day at the airport,” he said.
This is because more people are traveling as part of the Christmas celebrations, according to Dr. Asiedu Bekoe’s explanation, and the sickness travels and spreads quicker when people travel.
He used the opportunity to urge Ghanaians to get the Covid-19 vaccine, saying that it is safer to have the vaccine than not to get it.
