Address To The Country By The Leader Of The Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, On Updates To Ghana's Improved Reaction To The Covid Pandemic, On Sunday, twentieth September 2020.
Fellow Ghanaian,good evening .
This is the (seventeenth) time that you are mercifully making the ways for your homes to me to empower me brief you about the issue of Coronavirus, the means being taken by the Administration to dispense with it, and the measures being executed to ease dynamically and securely the limitations set up to crush the infection.
We, in Ghana, have unquestionably made considerable progress, and have gained noteworthy ground in battling the sickness. The tension, dread and frenzy displayed by many, particularly when the initial two (2) cases were recorded on our shores, have been supplanted, lately, by a developing feeling of good faith and recharged trust that we are headed to winning the fight against the pandemic. The improvement in the circumstance is all gratitude to the adequacy of the measures set up by Government, the co-activity and backing of you, the Ghanaian public, and, assuredly, by the beauty of Omnipotent God.
By the by, I appeal to all of you to keep on stepping on the way developed by Government, and follow strictly all the social separating, veil wearing and upgraded cleanliness conventions. They are and will remain our weapons in this battle against the infection. In a similar way, we need to make sure to keep improving our wellness by practicing and eating great, disparaging our sound Ghanaian nourishment, which will support our resistance to sickness, and help us in the battle against the pandemic.
At the point when I conveyed Update No. 16, precisely three weeks back, the quantity of recorded dynamic cases, that is people with the infection, remained at 1,000, 800 and 47 (1,847). This number, as at Friday, eighteenth September 2020, has diminished significantly to 500 and seven (507) people. There are, right now, a few areas in the nation without dynamic cases. More noteworthy Accra, Eastern, Ashanti and Focal Locales represent exactly (80%) of the dynamic cases. As at Friday, eighteenth September 2020, the all out number of tests led is 400 and 70,000, 700 and thirty (470,730). Up until this point, an aggregate of 45 thousand, 200 and 58 (45,258) people have recouped, and 200 and 97 (297) people, an extraordinary lion's share of them with hidden ailments, for example, hypertension, diabetes, constant liver infection and asthma, have tragically kicked the bucket.
Notwithstanding these empowering measurements, I know there are numerous who are asking why I have not reported a total re-visitation of regularity in all parts of public life, since they accept the figures recommend we have reversed the situation in the battle against the infection. Truly, our demise rate keeps on being low, and our emergency clinics have, leniently, not been overpowered, as there seem to be, by and by, just twenty (20) extreme and basic cases. In reality, there are a ton of void beds in our treatment habitats, and the seclusion places have basically no patients under consideration. Be that as it may, in all honesty: we can't manage, at this crucial point in time, to go ahead despite any potential risks, and devastate the fantastic measure of work attempted by Government, wellbeing authorities, gallant bleeding edge wellbeing laborers, and individuals from the security organizations, in presenting to us this far. Presently like never before, we should be considerably more focused in our adherence to the individual cleanliness, veil wearing and social removing measures that have become part of our day by day schedules. That is the best approach to kill the infection out and out. The involvement with different pieces of the world give us that the infection can get back furiously, when you let your watchman down.
Fellow Ghanaian, in my last location, I declared the resuming of our worldwide air terminal, Kotoka Global Air terminal, flagging our steady reintegration with the remainder of the world. Sixteen (16) out of the (23) carriers that worked in Kotoka preceding its conclusion have, once more, initiated trips to and from Accra.
As at yesterday, Saturday, nineteenth September, an aggregate of 10,000 and 61 (10,061) travelers have been tried at Kotoka. Regardless of the prerequisite that all travelers must be in control of a negative PCR test result upon their appearance in Ghana, a test which ought to have been led not more than (72) hours before the booked takeoff from the nation of beginning, an aggregate of (26) positive cases have been recorded from the tests at KIA. Let us briefly stop and envision what might have occurred if these (26) positives had not been identified, and had been permitted to blend with the populace. Despite the fact that the expense of 100 and fifty US dollars (US$150) per traveler, for the obligatory air terminal Coronavirus test, has been censured in specific quarters, the estimation of the test in its speed, exactness and investment funds for travelers, who no longer need to shoulder the expense of the 14-day compulsory isolate in lodgings, has been unmistakably settled.
It is significant that many individuals, who have encountered from the start hand the administration being offered at our worldwide air terminal, have applauded the nation for the development and farsightedness in plain view at our air terminal. Let me guarantee you again that, as Leader of the Republic, I will do my absolute best to ensure you and stop the importation of the infection into our nation, or restrict and contain its spread. This is my grave responsibility to you.
Individual Ghanaian, on Friday, eighteenth September, 500 and 31 thousand, 600 and 74 (531,674) JHS 3 understudies finished the Essential Instruction Endorsement Assessment (BECE). SHS 3 understudies additionally, on fifth September, composed the last paper of the West Africa Senior Optional Testament Assessments (WASSCE). I am especially energized at this improvement in light of the fact that, in spite of the feelings of trepidation and certified uneasiness communicated by a few, and the reactions proffered by some in the political space, these understudies have gone to class, considered, sat and finished their assessments sound. Their forward walk in life has not been intruded. Furthermore, by the finesse of God, the forecasts made by some of broad diseases and even passing didn't appear. I promised I will be the last individual to put the lives of understudies in danger, and I express my profound gratefulness to all guardians and gatekeepers for the trust rested in me and Government. I appeal to God for the achievement of the understudies in their tests.
As has just been reported, important game plans and strategic organizations are being made for the re-visitation of school of second year Junior and Senior Secondary School understudies. Proceeding with understudies in the College of Cape Coast, the College of Wellbeing and Associated Sciences, Specialized Colleges, and some different Universities have gotten back to class, and I have been dependably educated that adherence to conventions is high. Long may it proceed.
On Monday, fourteenth September, I stretched out, by Leader Instrument, the obligatory wearing of face veils by another three (3) months. Along these lines, until fourteenth December 2020, the wearing of covers stays compulsory, and the law implementation organizations will be needed to guarantee this order is regarded by all. It has served us well in the battle against Coronavirus, so I ask all of us to wear our veils, and do so accurately whenever we leave our homes. It is the new typical prerequisite of our day by day presence until the infection vanishes.
Towards the reformist facilitating of limitations, Government has taken the choice to permit the resumption of preparing in all physical games, thinking about the inescapable support of our public groups in worldwide rivalries. For sure, some public groups have just been given the administration to start preparing, in front of their global commitment. All games individuals, who are stayed outdoors, are to be tried consistently.
Individual Ghanaian, regarding football, after due conferences with the Ghana Football Affiliation, it has been concluded that the Ghana Chief Group and the Division One Football Association will restart on Friday, 30th October, with a full system of testing of the players, specialized and the executives staff. No onlookers will be permitted at the instructional hubs, and, when real rivalry resumes, seating at all stadia will be restricted to 25 percent (25%) ability to guarantee social separating. Wearing of covers by observers at stadia will be compulsory. The restart of all other wearing rivalries will be resolved dependent upon the situation, forthcoming meetings between the Service of Youth and Sports and the separate game affiliations.
Private entombment, still, with a limit of (100) people, can keep on being performed. Our outskirts, via land and ocean, will stay shut to human traffic until further notification. Sea shores, bars, films and dance club stay shut until further notification. All different organizations that have been cleared to work are to keep on doing as such in exacting adherence to the Coronavirus conventions.
Individual Ghanaians, as we work to free the infection from our shores, let us keep on recalling, consistently, that this infection is no respecter of people, and has unleashed its ruin on each nation on the planet. There are nations that are forcing lockdown once more, others are forcing curfews, all in an offer to control the beginning of new contamination and a subsequent wave. Let us keep on paying special mind to each other, and stay each other's guardian. Joined together, and in light of one objective, we will develop triumphant in the battle against Coronavirus. Zero dynamic cases must be a definitive point.
My revitalizing cry to all of you remains: this also will pass! For the Fight is the Lord's.
May God favor us all, and our country Ghana, and make her incredible and solid.
I thank you for your consideration, and have a goodbye.
