Covid-19: Ghana to tighten measures to avert ‘further outbreak’
The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has served notice existing Covid-19 measures would have to be tightened and reviewed to avoid escalation of the disease.
According to the Service, though there has been a decline and sustained low levels of the viral disease in the country over the past three months, increase in cases in China and other countries has become a source of worry.
The situation, therefore, calls for a critical monitoring for the next decision to be taken, according to the Service.
“Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health are critically monitoring the situation in consultation with key stakeholders,” a statement issued by the Director-General of the Service, Dr Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, on Sunday, January 1 said.
“We will shortly come out with our country specific measures to address the current threat of Covid–19 especially with respect to importation.”
It urged Ghanaians to avail themselves for vaccination to marginally save the situation.
“Those who have taken their first dose are to go for the second dose and those who have taken their second dose are also entreated to go for the booster.
“Vaccination remains the best protection against Covid–19 infection.”
