According to them, this is the only way Ghana can stop the import of Coronavirus into the country as more cases have been recorded in just a few days.

The GMA noted that Ghana’s health system is not well equipped enough to handle more cases.

So the only way out now is to lock down the country for some time.

PRESS STATEMENT ON NATIONAL RESPONSE TO COVID-19

The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has observed with grave concern the increasing heed of confirmed cases for COVID-19 in Ghana and our national response to the pandemic. On the day of national prayer and fasting, we call on all Ghanaians to keep this sacred and intercede for the nation.

The GMA being fully conscious of the threat posed by this pandemic. the disturbing heed of community spread and the obvious inadequate of capacity (logistic and human resource) of the nation’s health system to deal with increased numbers of COVID-19 infection especially in the severe to critical cases, call on His Excellency the President of the Republic of Ghana to declare a Nationwide Lockdown with the exception of essential services with immediate effect.

The Lockdown though not a comfortable decision for leadership and citizens alike. is a proven option backed by science and along with the other measures will ultimately be in our best interest. VVe call on all Ghanaians to support such a move in the national interest to save our nation from the devastating effects of the pandemic.

Dr Frank Ankobea President. GMA
Dr. Jus,ce Yankson General Secretary. GMA
