There are some who hold certain believes not backed by science. we need to do more to ensure these people are educated. To this end, we are going to step-up local-level education from this week and we will be respectfully asking for the assistance of these groups, traditional rulers, media and the number of others’’.
The Ghana Police Service has vowed to be tough on Covidiots who will not adhere to the ‘stay at home’ directive announced by the president.
Ghana’s COVID-19 case count has risen to 636.
