The Ghana Medical Association is imploring the general public to be cautious as they celebrate Easter since the COVID-19 virus still exists.

Ghanaians are celebrating Easter without restrictions for the very first time in two years.

The Easter celebration which marks the death and resurrection of Christ is often characterized by merry-making and picnics. These fun activities were withheld amid the outbreak of COVID-19.

But, restrictions have been eased due to the decreased rate of infections.

The President of Ghana, Akufo-Addo in his televised Easter message to Ghanaians ahead of the celebrations said;  “I appeal to each one of you, notwithstanding the lifting of the restrictions and the good news about infections, to continue to live responsibly and safely, so we can all play our part in building mother Ghana.”

Currently, Ghana has 32 Covid-19 active cases on record.

However, the General Secretary of the Association Dr. Titus Beyuo in an interview with Blessed Sogah on the pulse on Friday, April 15, 2022, stated that; “the only thing we want to say is that as we go about celebrating, we should be a bit mindful”.

“We are celebrating the Easter for first time in about two years without getting restrictions which is good news, but people should still take personal responsibility concerning their health and in relation to COVID. We are asking that if you’re having any symptoms, please make sure you use your mask before you go into a public space or into an indoor event.”
