GHS to review Covid-19 measures as cases go up in China

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) says it is reviewing Covid-19 preventive measures due to increasing cases in China and other countries.

According to the GHS, in spite of the sustained low levels of Covid-19 cases in Ghana over the past three months, the change in the global situation particularly in China as well as Ghana’s relatively low vaccine coverage poses a major threat to importation and a new wave of COVID-19 infection in the country.

GHS in a statement signed by the Director-General, Dr Patrick Kumah-Aboagye, said the “situation calls for tightening and reviewing of existing measures to avert further outbreaks. Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health are critically monitoring the situation in consultation with key stakeholders. We will shortly come out with our country-specific measures to address the current threat of COVID-19, especially with respect to importation.”

The GHS encouraged Ghanaians who have not availed themselves for the COVID-19 vaccination to do so.

The statement added that “those who have taken their first dose are to go for the second dose and those who have taken their second dose are also entreated to go for the booster. Vaccination remains the best protection against COVID-19 infection.”
