He said “I am speaking to you tonight from the Peduase Lodge after having just completed the last cabinet retreat of government for this year. And I thank you for allowing me into your homes once again.”
Regarding the covid-19 pandemic, he noted that, a zero active case of coronavirus in Ghana is his target in spite of the success in containing the virus.
He noted that although Ghana has done well in tackling the pandemic, the virus is still lurking around.
To that end, he has urged all Ghanaians to “continue to comply with the measures put in place to deal with the virus. This is the surest way by which we can defeat the virus.”
“Zero active cases must be the goal,” the president added.
Mr Akufo-Addo further noted that covid-19 related deaths in Ghana remain low as against what is happening in other parts of the world.
He attributed the success in containing the spread of the virus to the prudent measures his government instituted.
He said “The rate of death 0.5 per cent continues to remain very low.
“Thirteen more deaths have occurred bringing the total number of deaths tragically to 310 out of a total number of 510,074 tested.”
