President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is addressing the nation on the country’s fight against the novel coronavirus pandemic and the gains made so far.
Today’s address, the 10th since the outbreak of the viral disease in Ghana in March, is largely focused on why and why not there must be revocations of some restrictions; completely or partially.
There is currently a ban on social activities including schools, churches, mosques, funeral, parties and conferences as part of measures in curbing the spread of the pandemic.
It has been iterated and reiterated a number of times that the dreaded disease has come to stay and will be with world for a while.
It has therefore become imperative for mankind to find ways and means to live with it without getting overwhelmed even as the world makes frantic efforts to get vaccine or wait for it to die out naturally.
It is against this backdrop that the President is expected to announce the lifting of some of the restrictions particularly on churches and schools.
Already, exclusive information available to ABC News suggests the President, Akufo-Addo will for the first time in four months allow some limited services in churches and mosques for short periods.
Our sources suggest the sessions will be allowed for about 50 to 100 people present while observing social distancing and other protocols.
The announcement will also see some activity resume in schools while it remains unclear if other social restrictions such as funerals will be also allowed.
The move is sure to come as a relief to several Preachers who have been advocating for the lifting of restrictions on social gatherings in the past few weeks.
