Ghana’s Coronavirus cases keep reducing amid the nationwide inoculation program. Recent figures from the Ghana Health Service shows case numbers reducing significantly from over 400 daily case counts in February to 102 daily cases as at March 12.
Government began mass vaccination of the COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, across selected places in the country.
In President Akufo-Addo's 24th COVID-19 address to the nation, he mentioned that the vaccines were going to be administered in some 43 districts which according to him have been earmarked as Epicenters.
Prior to that, the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and his wife, Rebecca Akufo-Addo were the first to take the jab at the 37 military hospital.
The Programme Manager on Immunization at the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Kwame Amponsa-Achiano, has noted that a total of 30,500 Ghanaians have received the COVID-19 vaccine as of March 3, 2021.
He noted that out of the 30,500, about 16,990 of them are males while 13,450 are females
Archbishop Duncan Williams has chided a cross section of the public including pastors for churning conspiracy theories over the Covid-19 vaccine.
Duncan Williams in his sermon on a Sunday revealed he had taken his vaccine and that it demands faith to take the Covid-19 vaccine.
Even though he was not specific whom he was targeting in his sermon, excerpts of the chiding can be targeted at Pastor Chris who earlier held a sermon churning what he believed to be evil intentions behind the Coronavirus pandemic and its subsequent vaccine.
According to Pastor Chris, the vaccine is meant to wipe out the human race. But this, Duncan Williams fiercely rejects.
“People are saying all kinds of conspiracy theories against the vaccine? If you don’t have what to preach stop preaching and making a whole sermon out of vaccines. We all take vaccines – from polio to measles – what is different about this vaccine that has got many talking.”
