President Akufo-Addo is encouraging the general public to wear masks wherever they go in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
“Like the World Health Organisation (WHO) has recently advised, I want to encourage you to wear a mask wherever you go, as it will help you not to contract the virus, and keep it clean,” he said.
“If you own a business, or are providing a service, i.e. a barber, a hairdresser, a tailor, a taxi driver, a trotro driver and his ‘mate’, a shop keeper, a food seller, please do well to use a mask,” he added.
In his 7th COVID-19 address to the nation on Sunday, April 17, he added that: “The Ministry of Health will very soon issue guidelines on face masks for public use.”
