The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has advised the government to with immediate effect reintroduce the restrictions on all forms of gatherings.
General Secretary of the GMA, Dr. Justice Yankson said restrictions on funerals, parties, weddings, and all other events should be reintroduced.
He said the restrictions are long over due and to prevent further spreads, we have to announce the restrictions.
The latest and new cases he indicated are being recorded from such gatherings and it is an indication for us to reintroduce the restrictions.
He further advised that we have to also reintroduce localized restrictions in hotspots or areas where the cases are spreading more.
Dr. Justice Yankson explained he would not want to use lockdown but stressed “we need to immediately reintroduce restrictions on all weddings, parties, funerals, and other events. We cannot allow this to continue. We should also not hesitate to introduce localized restrictions”
He warned the situation currently is not the best and the earlier we take steps to prevent the spread, the best for us.
He said out health facilities are overstretched with pressure on our medical officers.
The medical officer said if we do not take care, we will record more deaths.
He asked Ghanaians to pray to our doctors and frontline health workers.
