COVID-19: Fully Vaccinated People Should Still Wear Their Masks – Dr DaCosta Aboagye Advises

The Director of Health Promotion at the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr DaCosta Aboagye, has advised that fully vaccinated people should continue to wear masks outdoors and indoors as life hasn’t returned to normal yet.
Dr DaCosta Aboagye said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show, ‘Ghana Montie’ that the government's aim is to vaccinate at least 20 million Ghanaians by end of the year to help curb the spread of the virus.
According to him, fully immunized people will need to physically distance in most places until further notice.
“We can’t stop wearing our masks until a majority of Ghanaians are vaccinated as targeted by the government,” he said.
His comment follows the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announcement that fully vaccinated people do not need to wear masks outdoors.
President Joe Biden emerged at the White House for remarks without a mask saying - "I think it's a great milestone, a great day".
But Dr DaCosta Aboagye says Ghanaians should not shed their masks even after vaccination.
