The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has issued a warning to the government not to consider lifting the ban on public gatherings now until further notice.

The government during the start of the COVID-19 placed a ban on all public gatherings including Church activities.

Measures were followed by a lockdown that lasted for a period of 3 weeks.

As it stands now, Ghana’s coronavirus case count is now at 4,263 with 4 more deaths, however, churches are mounting pressure on the government to lift the ban as they work around the clock to ensure that they take precautionary measures.

The GMA in a press release urged the government to sustain the ban on public gatherings.

“His Excellency the President of the Republic should not lift the ban on social gatherings for religious activities, schools, marriage ceremonies, funerals, etc.”

“Government must ensure the prompt and continuous distribution of PPE’s to all health workers at their various institutions (or places of work) at all times. This will guarantee the safety of all health workers as they continue to render care to patients,” GMA added in the statement.
