President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed his utmost gratitude to all Ghanaians, especially health care workers who have been at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19.

According to President Akufo-Addo, the frontline workers are the real heroes and heroines of this generation as they are risking their own lives while attending to persons affected by the coronavirus infection.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to overwhelm the world in terms of the number of persons it infects and sometimes kills daily, persons who have had to directly deal with these infections and mortalities are health workers.

Speaking in a televised address on Sunday, April 5, 2020, the President said, “Let me thank in particular all our frontline actors who continue to put their lives on the line to help ensure that we defeat the virus. To our health workers, I say a big Ayekoo to the continuous sacrifice you are making in caring for those infected with the virus and in caring for the sick in general. You are the heroes and heroines of our generation and government will do all in its power to provide the relevant tools.”

Also, the President thanked residents of the Greater Accra, Greater Kumasi, Kasoa and Tema areas, who have been subjected to restrictions of movement for the past one week as part of efforts to contain the spread of the virus.

“Nine days ago, I came to your homes and requested you to make greater sacrifices to save lives and to protect our motherland. I announced the imposition of strict restrictions to movements and asked the residents of the Greater Accra Metropolitan area, and Kasoa and the Greater Kumasi Metropolitan area and its contiguous districts to stay at home for two weeks to give us the opportunity to stave off this pandemic. As a result, residents of these two areas had to make significant adjustments to our way of life, with the ultimate goal being to protect permanently our continued existence on this land.”

“They heeded the call, and they have proven, so far, to each other, and, indeed, to the entire world, that being a Ghanaian means we look out for each other. Yes, there are a few who continue to find ways to be recalcitrant, but the greater majority have complied, and have done so with calm and dignity. Tonight, I say thank you to each and every one of you law-abiding citizens,” he added.
