YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a new Executive Instrument (E.I 164) in Ghana has made it compulsory for everyone to wear a face mask in public or risk a maximum of 10-year jail term.
The law, which has been signed by President Akufo-Addo came into force on June 15, 2020.
Those without face mask risk being incarcerated between four and 10 years or will pay a fine of GH¢12,000 to GH¢60,000, or both.
The E.I was passed as part of measures to minimise the spread of the COVID-19.
