The Ghana Medical Association before President Akufo-Addo's 9th national address on the measures taken to fight the spread of COVID-19 in the country, in a press statement advised the President to keep to the already restricted measures considering the increase in number of positive cases.
According to the President of the Association Dr. Frank Ankobea, "as an association they are happy with the President's 9th coronavirus update to the nation, by adhering to their suggested findings since it will help them work at the daily trending of the pandemic in the country."
In an interview with UTV's 'Adekye Nsroma' program, he insisted that, "government should involve the services of security officials like it did during the partial lockdown period since some citizens have blatantly refused to comply with the various precautionary measures put in place by government."
"Indeed, we are happy with the President's 9th update because even though government has taken bold steps to hold the moving virus, we will suffer as a country when we refuse to practice with all seriousness the laid down measures needed to curb the disease like we see currently," he noted.
Dr. Frank Ankobea mentioned that the sector is still challenged with distribution of PPE's to various hospitals even though some adequate number of local manufacturers have been contracted by government to sew them.
