The Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu has expressed concern and worry over the increasing rate of COVID-19 in Ghana.
According to him, President Akufo-Addo and himself are all tired and weary over Ghana’s COVID-19 situation as measures to salvage the spread has proven futile.
Mr Kwaku Agyeman-Manu has blamed the hike in COVID-19 on Ghanaians who have typically ignored to practice the stipulated hygiene protocols.
The Health Minister has noted that they are ready to deploy the police to ensure that people abide by the COVID-19 rules to halt the spread.
“If we don’t do that, the virus will continue to spread. Our positive cases continue to increase if we are not careful the positive cases will turn into critical illness. Nana Addo is tired. Those of us leading the fight are fatigued because we have done all that we could to defeat the virus but people are not adhering to the preventive protocols. So I am begging everyone to adhere to hand washing, social distancing and wearing of masks directives to help save the country some money and reduce the stress in fighting this disease,” he said.
“Some people have their masks kept in their pocket. Yesterday I caused the arrest of some people, the voluntary compliance is not working so we have to use the police to arrest and prosecute.” He added.
