“The Risk Is Still There, Please Wear Your Nose Mask” – Dr. Kuma-Aboagye Appeals To Ghanaians(VIDEO)

The Director General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye is appealing to the general public not to write off the wearing of the nose mask following President Akufo-Addo’s ‘no longer mandatory’ pronouncement in his last covid update to the nation.

According to Dr. Kuma-Aboagye, the public should at most wear their nose mask whenever they find themselves in an enclosed and a congested area to avoid the spread of the disease.

Addressing Journalists in Accra on Tuesday, he said “The President said it is not mandatory but he did not say don’t wear it. The risk is still there and so we recommend that where possible, wear your mask and especially when you are in an enclosed and a congested area”

“I will not enter a lift without my mask on. Even in a small place where there are 8 people, you have to wear it. Closed and congested places or onboard an Aircraft with a small tube, among others, it is safer to wear your mask”

“In schools, we encourage that they continue wearing their mask because those below 15 are not safe and it still remains as a potential threat to them”

The Director General of the Ghana Health Service ceased the opportunity to commend Men of God as well as Imams for pushing the agenda and ensuring that their members adhered to the directives which was given by the President.

He told Journalists that although most of restrictions eased, he is still calling on persons who have taken only one jab to go for the second.

Dr. Kuma-Aboagye also reminded persons who are yet to have both jabs to do so in order to protect themselves, family and the environment.

He urged travelers to also adhere to all directives given at the various Airports.
