Intensify safety protocols at enclosed workplaces to curb spike in COVID-19- Oppong Nkrumah
Managers of enclosed work environments must step up compliance measures to curb the rise in numbers of covid-19.
This is according to Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.
Ghana’s case count has seen a sharp rise in recent days, a situation attributed to the low level of compliance with safety precautions.
Speaking to Citi News, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the government will continue to educate the populace on the need to adhere to all safety protocols.
“The COVID spike in numbers is a bit worrying. The data suggests that a lot of them is coming from enclosed environments and that is why we have renewed calls for managers of these places to step up compliance to COVID protocols while we step up general public education so that we do not go higher in terms of our numbers.
“Again the data shows that over 75 percent of the spike is in the Greater Accra Region and therefore it is important to ensure that compliance is even deeper in this particular area. When it comes to COVID,all cards are on the table but it is a dynamic exercise. The data is what directs us on what to do. ”
Within a period of three weeks, the number of active COVID-19 cases in Ghana has increased by more than 700 cases.
