The country’s active cases stand at 2,858.
This data is provided by the Ghana Health Service and according to the Health authority, there is an upsurge in the cases.
Speaking on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ programme, Prof. Joseph Osafo reminded Ghanaians of the risks in neglecting the COVID protocols.
He advised Ghanaians to strictly adhere to the wearing of nose masks, social distancing and all other preventive etiquette against the virus.
He called on the citizenry to note that it is better to be alive than die prematurely.
“To go mad and live long is better than dying prematurely,” he stated.
