President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has addressed the nation on the country’s fight against the novel coronavirus pandemic and the gains made so far.

Today’s address, the 10th since the outbreak of the viral disease in Ghana in March, largely focused on steps taken to ease the restrictions on movement put in place in March.

There is currently a ban on social activities including schools, churches, mosques, funeral, parties and conferences as part of measures in curbing the spread of the pandemic.

It has been iterated and reiterated a number of times that the dreaded disease has come to stay and will be with world for a while.

It has therefore become imperative for mankind to find ways and means to live with it without getting overwhelmed even as the world makes frantic efforts to get vaccine or wait for it to die out naturally.

It is against this backdrop that the President announced the partial lifting of some of the restrictions particularly on churches and schools.

ABC News earlier reported that the President, Akufo-Addo would for the first time in four months allow some limited services in churches and mosques for short periods.

Few minutes into his address, the President indeed announced the easing of restrictions for churches and mosques with a maximum number of 100 persons in an auditorium. These persons are to practice a one meter social distancing rule.

The President also announced the partial lifting of restrictions for final year JHS and SHS students as well as Universities.
