“With the doctors and scientists telling us that the virus is transmitted from human contact, through talking, singing, coughing and sneezing, which results in sending droplets of the virus from one person to another, residents of these four regions, and, indeed, all Ghanaians, must remember that the wearing of masks is now mandatory.

The four regions mentioned in the president’s address currently have the highest cases recorded so far with Greater leading the caseload figures with 6,997 cases followed by Ashanti, Western and Centrals following with 2,2021, 951 and 621 cases respectively.
