President Akufo-Addo has officially reiterated the World Health Organization’s (WHO) declaration that COVID-19 no longer represents a global health emergency.
The World Health Organization first declared the public health emergency of international concern in January 2020.
Ghana had its initial cases in March of that year, triggering a number of health measures characterized by vaccinations, testing, and other drastic measures to stem the spread of the pandemic.
This included periodic updates by President Akufo-Addo on the progress of the fight against the virus.
In his final address to the nation on the measures in the COVID-19 fight on Sunday, May 28, President Akufo-Addo expressed his gratitude to all who supported the cause during the trying time.
The update comes as the COVID-19 health declaration form for international travelers to Ghana has been suspended.
