President Nana Akufo Addo has ordered the mandatory wearing of face masks in public due to the growing number of Covid-19 cases in Ghana.

He said police and law enforcement agencies have been tasked to enforce the directive through the executive instruments.

“Doctors and scientists tell us that the virus is transmitted through human contact such as talking, singing, coughing and sneezing, which causes virus droplets to move from one person to another, to residents in these four regions, and even to all Ghanaians, they must remember that wearing a mask is now mandatory.

“Leaving our homes without face masks is a crime. The police have been instructed to implement this directive, which is the subject of executive instruments,” the President stated in his 11th address to the nation.

The number of COVID-19 cases in Ghana is currently 11,964.

As a result, the President urged Ghanaians to comply with the safety and security protocols in order to curb the increasing number of cases in the country.

“Let me repeat: Our survival is in our hands. If we are careless, we will continue to have serious problems with the virus. If we are mindful and self-disciplined, we have the power to overcome this pandemic and make our lives normal again.

“I urge each of you for your help in this matter. This is the surest way to achieve our collective vision of building a new Ghanaian civilization where the rule of law is not a slogan, but the guiding principle for the development of our country makes social and economic changes that have an impact significant to the lives of all our people.”

Wearing a mask in public was initially mandatory in the Accra area.
