A modern 100-bed facility which took an impressive 93 days to be built was completed earlier this month. The new facility known as the Ghana Infectious Disease Centre was all funded by the Ghana Covid-19 private sector fund and individual donors. This 100-bed facility based in Accra has been built specifically to deal with the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country. The new centre has been hailed for demonstrating the generous spirit of Ghanaians since the outbreak of the virus.
Earlier this month, President Nana Akufo-Addo went into isolation after coming into contact with someone who tested positive. The President was able to resume work later in the month after testing negative. Upon his return, in his address to the nation, he announced that some more restrictions would be eased. Some restrictions that have been eased include an extension of gatherings in places of worship from one hour to two, but members of congregations are still required to wear face masks and maintain social distancing. However, beaches, clubs and bars remain closed.
Ghana is back on track in terms of its COVID testing after facing a setback due to a shortage of equipment and supplies. This is good news as Ghana is one of the countries in Africa that has been mostly affected by the virus. At the moment there have been over 30,000 cases, with 29,000 recoveries and 168 deaths.
On a lighter note, this month it was announced that the fashion brand Dior will be collaborating with Ghanaian painter, Amoako Boafo, for the 2021 Men’s collection. It’s great seeing Ghanaian talent being recognised worldwide at such a high level!
