The Minister of Health Kwaku Agyemang-Manu has stated that, the Ghana Police Service will soon be arresting people who will be spotted in the open place without wearing a nose mask.
He expressed worry that some people had disregarded the need to observe the health and safety protocols to prevent spread of the COVID-19 pandemic as most of such people went about their normal duties without wearing nose mask.
He disclosed this in aPress Briefing on 14th May, 2020.
“They (the safety protocols) are not difficult to do so I don’t understand why some of us do not do these things. We have been thinking about what to do next to enforce strict compliance with these basic guidelines, we are working on that and believe very soon we will see the police arresting some of us who are becoming too recalcitrant.”
According to him, the said situation could contribute greatly to spread the COVID-19 from one person to the other through droplets of people during sneezing or coughing.
During this morning’s press conference by the Ministry of Information, Dr Badu Sarkodie of the Ghana Health Service while giving an update on the country’s COVID-19 case count, revealed the total number of confirmed cases to be 5,530 while recoveries and deaths stood at 674 and 24 respectively.
