Akufo-Addo’s gov’t failing Ghanaians in COVID-19 fight – Mahama


Former President John Mahama says the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, under the leadership of Nana Akufo-Addo is falling Ghanaians in the fight against COVID-19.

The comes after the significant rise in positive COVID-19 cases in the country Friday night.

“From 3,091 to 4,012 #COVID19 cases within 24 hours; Government is certainly failing the people of Ghana. Fear gripped many homes last night when the latest confirmed cases were released. And that is understandable. #COVID19 is real, my brothers and sisters. I want to encourage you, yet again, to protect yourself. Regular handwashing with soap and under running water is a must.

“Stay Home, but if you have to go out for any reason including work, wear your mask, take along a hand sanitizer, and always disinfect commonly used and touched surfaces. And, let us continue to remember the poor & needy. They need our support,” Mahama wrote on Facebook.

Cases in Ghana have jumped to 4,012 from 3091, the Ghana Health Service has announced on its website.

According to GHS, “Over 50% of these cases were as a result of an outbreak in an industrial facility with 1,300 workers of which 533 have been confirmed positive.”

However, 323 people have recovered while the deaths still stand at 18.
