Stephanie Sullivan, US Ambassador to Ghana, has urged Ghanaians to adhere to all health and safety protocols issued by the government and other health authorities.
She said, in conformity with the directives, she has directed the staff of the embassy to work from home and to practice all health advice provided to stay safe and healthy.
In a message delivered from her home, in Accra, Ghana, Ambassador Sullivan said she reiterated President Akufo-Addo’s instruction that as much as possible Ghanaians should stay home to avoid the spread of the virus.
“I echo President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s call, for every Ghanaian and residents of Ghana to stay home as much as possible at this time as one of the most of the effective ways to combat the COVID-19 pandemic to break the chain of infections and flatten the curve,” the US Ambassador to Ghana stated in her broadcast.
She added, “We are all in this together. I am confident we will emerge from this stronger and more united. I look forward to the time that we can all meet face to face again and feel the vibe in person.”
“Stay safe and healthy at home” she advised.
Ghana has recorded 287 confirmed cases of COVID-19 out of which about 49 are awaiting final tests to confirm their recovery.
5 persons have, however, died.
The government, in an attempt to go ahead of the virus, has imposed a 2-week lockdown, ban social gatherings, encouraged everyone to stay at home, intensified education and closed down educational institutions.
