Majority of us must be vaccinated before Government will open land borders - Dr. Nsiah Asare.

The presidential health advisor has reacted to the demand of the residents of Elubo. The residents of Elubo embarked on a demonstration to call on the president to give them the permit to travel through lands because they have to eat. According to them, cases of COVID-19 at their municipality is relatively low so there's no need for the government to hold land borders closed.

Dr. Nsiah Asare who is the presidential health advisor has insinuated that it's not the wish I'd the Government to hold land borders closed. According to him, adhering to the COVID-19 protocols is not the only way of fighting it so the people should wait for majority of Ghanaians to be vaccinated before people will be permitted to travel through land.

"We are looking at the data, we are looking at the science and everything that is happening.. The President is more concerned about the economic devastation brought by the pandemic. The way to curb this pandemic, apart from the protocols is to ensure that a lot of people are immunized. Once you get a lot of people vaccinated it means the vulnerable people in the country become less and no amount of importation will cause a devastating effect." He made this know when he was exclusively live on Citi TV.
