He’s also assured that the government will ensure that the newly developed coronavirus vaccine reaches all.
“Until then, and with barely a week to the Christmas festivities, which bring in its wake family reunions, parties and many social and religious gatherings, I urge all of us to err on the side of caution, and observe the COVID-19 safety protocols no matter where we find ourselves,” Akufo-Addo said Sunday in his 20th national broadcast on measures taken to fight against COVID-19.

Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has said Ghana’s land and sea borders will remain closed until further notice.
“It is important to stress that our borders, by land and sea, will remain closed to human traffic until further notice. Beaches, pubs, cinemas and nightclubs remain closed until further notice. All other institutions that have been cleared to function are to continue to do so in strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocols.”
