“The number of doctors who are getting infected is increasing. We have lost seven of them, two this year and five last year,” Dr Ankobea said.
“We are monitoring things and if there’s the need to recommend extra restrictions to the President, trust the GMA to do that. We should embrace what the President has said as Ghanaians. We should take individual responsibility for ourselves and follow the basic rules and I’m sure we’ll be fine to go”.
It comes after President Akufo-Addo announced a ban on weddings and funerals as part of the government’s effort to combat the spread of the virus.
