President Akufo-Addo says government is targeting a zero active case count of the novel coronavirus in Ghana.
The President who was addressing the nation for the 17th time since Ghana recorded its first two cases of the virus said inspite of what is a very positive outlook in Ghana’s fight against the spread of COVID-19, the country is not out of the woods yet and that means, the people of Ghana cannot afford to let their guards down.
“As we work to rid the virus from our shores, let us continue to remember at all times that this virus is no respecter of persons and has recked its havoc on every country on the planet. There are countries that are imposing lockdowns all over again, others are imposing curfews all in a bid to curb the onset of fresh infections and a second wave” President Akufo-Addo said.
The President further charged the citizenry to continue to look out for one another and remain each others keeper, united, and with one goal in mind”, which is to win the fight against COVID-19.
“We will emerge victorious in the fight against COVID-19. Zero active cases must be the ultimate aim” President Akufo-Addo added.
