Ghana’s COVID-19 cases have risen to 1,329.
In the last few weeks, the cases have skyrocketed after falling to almost 300.
The Ministry of Health has said the reduction in compliance with the preventive protocols is to blame for the rise in cases across the country.
The government and the ministry are, therefore, asking Ghanaians to adhere to mask-wearing, hand-washing and social distancing protocols as well as use hand sanitisers.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in his 19th address on measures taken by the government to stem the surge in cases, further cautioned that severe sanctions exist in the laws to punish those who flout the las on wearing of masks.
“The more we adhere to the protocols, the quicker we defeat the virus,” he added.
