46,000 people were confirmed to have the COVID 19 virus, since the virus was confirmed in the country from March 2020.
The government of Ghana did massively in controlling the spread of the virus in the country. Restrictions were made everywhere, and certain changes also came into play.
The most challenging incident that occurred during the period of the pandemic is the general lock down. Ghanaians had no option than to adopt to the new lifestyle.
The security agencies also contributed their quota in fighting against the virus. Not to talk of the media participants who aided in public education and other advocates.
The health workers can never be left out when talking of the pandemic.
They risked their lives to care for patients who got infected with the virus. Majority of the health workers got infected with the virus, but that did not prevent them from undertaking their responsibilities.
Gradually, the virus is coming to an end. Due to this, certain bans and restrictions have been lifted by the government.
Restaurants can now operate so as other public places. Schools and Universities have been reopened.
The Accra Kotoka International Airport has been reopened for regular international passenger travel. Ban on sporting activities have been lifted.
Things are gradually going back to how they use to be. However, all the safety protocols related to the virus are still adhered to.
The Ministry of Health has mandated the use of facemasks in public. The police are enforcing this directive. Close contacts to persons have to be avoided. The no handshake no hug protocols are still ongoing.
Let us all observe the necessary protocols to drive the virus out of the country once and for all.
