Akufo-Addo has instructed the IGP to enforce the mandatory wearing of mask in public places.
This comes after the president expressed worry over the increasing number of the active cases of the coronavirus in the country.
President Akufo-Addo in his address to the nation on Sunday said that some arriving passengers at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) have tested positive for the new variance of the coronavirus.
He revealed that these persons have been isolated.
“In furtherance of this, I have instructed the Inspector General of Police to direct officers, men and women of the Police Service to ensure the rigorous enforcement of the law on mask wearing at all public places and in public transport. They are also to ensure the closure of all night clubs, pubs, cinemas and beaches that may be operating in defiance of the law. They will be assisted by the other security agencies, if need be.”
