The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has hinted on a possible spike in the coronavirus cases here in Ghana as many have avoided wearing a face mask.
According to the survey conducted by the Ghana Health Service, only 14% of people in Accra now wear facemasks as a lot think the virus is no more.
Speaking at a press conference the countries General Director of Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, said Ghanaians should focus on wearing face masks now than ever as we continue to fight the pandemic.
“Greater Accra is the one that is driving the pandemic in Ghana and so it is extremely important that we reset and go back and start wearing the mask so that the active cases will come down. We started with one case and now 43,000. Where we are now, we need to be very careful. That is our major worry and we need to intensify the campaign for wearing face masks,” he said.
The wearing of face masks has become mandatory because of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
