President Akufo-Addo: Coronavirus will not go away on its own

According to the President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the fact is that the novel Coronavirus, which is raging havoc around the world, will not go away from humanity on its own.

Delivering his 14th update to Ghanaians from the Jubilee House, the seat of government, in the national Capital on Sunday night, July 26, 2020, President Akufo-Addo re-echoed the need for strict adherence to Coronavirus safety protocols involve hand sanitizing, face masking, social distancing, among others.

Announcing the second phase of Covid-19 easing in Ghana, Mr Akufo-Addo said “We are now at the end of July. The virus is still raging. There is not an effective treatment yet. As time goes on, we – and, indeed, the world – have come to understand that Covid-19 is not a problem which will go away on its own.”

The Sunday night address by the President came with the easing of Covid-19 induced restrictions in Ghana’s tourism and transport sectors, with domestic airlines and commercial buses and taxis asked to resume full operations.

President Akufo-Addo admitted how Covid-19 had disrupted life in Ghana and around the world.

“It is not normal that we have to wear masks, but now we have to; it is not normal that we cannot shake hands with each other; and it is certainly not normal that we cannot hug our family members and loved ones; but that is our current reality,” the Ghanaian leader who recently underwent a 14-day mandatory self-isolation over coronavirus, said.

“Until treatment is found, Covid-19 will remain a part of our lives,” he said.

The John Hopkins University has revealed that at least some 16,151,790 cases of Coronavirus and 646,996 deaths have been recorded around the world.

Ghana has recorded at least 32,969 positive cases.
