President Nana Akufo-Addo has touted his policies as the best in addressing the pandemic Coronavirus disease in the country.
According to him, the rapid implementation of his policies ”has resulted in our low infection, hospitalisation and death rates, some of the lowest in Africa and the world” and that his government is on the right track.
Although Ghana’s COVID-19 cases have shot up to 4700, the President believes his decisions have saved more lives.
Responding to criticisms by political opponents that his government is failing Ghanaians, President Akufo-Addo said in his ninth nation address on Sunday, May 10, 2020 that ”on the contrary, we must be emboldened in the knowledge that the 4,700 persons infected, so far, with the virus, have been identified, taken out of the population, isolated and are being treated.”
‘‘We, certainly, must be doing something right in Ghana. Our country has administered more tests per million people than any other country in Africa, and, in fact, the World Health Organisation has reached out to us to share our sample pooling experience with other African countries, so they can adopt this strategy and also ramp up their testing capabilities”, he stressed.
