”I am very confident that we will overcome it. Fortunately for us, the number of people who have died in Ghana is very very small. It’s unfortunate each death is unfortunate but never the less, the numbers in Ghana are small and the numbers of people who have been hospitalized as a result of the COVID-19 and are in severe conditions are also small at the moment,” President Akufo-Addo said.

He added that ”We pray to God that it continues that way. Because if it continues that way, then it gives us the opportunity to look at how we can ease the many restrictions that is making life for all of us difficult.
