President Akufo-Addo has met with executives of the Ghana Medical Association following the decision to lift the restriction of movement of persons amid increasing cases of COVID-19 in the country.
At the meeting, the President briefed them on the factors that led to the decision and called on the Ghana Medical Association and its members to support government’s efforts aimed at curbing the spread of the pandemic.
“On Monday, 20th April 2020, I met with the Executive Committee of the Ghana Medical Association at Jubilee House, the seat of the nation’s presidency, to brief them of the factors that led to the decision to lift the partial lockdown on Accra, Kasoa, Kumasi and Tema. I also elicited the continuous support of the Association and its members towards the fight to defeat the Coronavirus pandemic in the country,” the President said on his Facebook page.
“As President of this country, I cannot also ignore the impact that this lockdown is having on several constituencies of our country, specifically those who are a very important part of the Ghanaian equation, the people who live, if you like, ‘hand-to-mouth,’ informal workers who need to have a day out in the market one form or the other for their families, who are having a lot of difficulty,” he added.
The Ghana Medical Association pledged their unflinching support to government in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
