President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urgend Ghanaians to be be very circumspect of their lifestyle before, during and after the Christmas holidays.

He assets there will be an influx of visitors during the festivities with its corresponding charged activities, a situation which caused a rise in Ghana’s coronavirus case count last year.

“We should be guided by what transpired last Christmas, where there was a sharp spike in the number of Covid infection cases and deaths in the immediate months of January and February 2021,” President Akufo-Addo observed on Wednesday, December 15 when he addressed the nation in a televised broadcast on the deadly disease.

“We should avoid the repetition of such a scenario after this year’s Christmas celebration.”

He has, therefore, called on Ghanaians to take the choice to act responsibly this forthcoming Yuletide season.

“Let us choose to live and act responsibly throughout the Christmas festivities, and remember that our actions or inactions will either help to end the pandemic at a much faster rate or continue to spread the virus in the country.”

President Akufo-Addo assured that enough covid vaccines have been brought into the country, urging all those who have not been inoculated to do get the jabs.

“Let me state, as clearly as I can. The vaccines are safe. They will not harm you. The will protect you and your family.”

So far, over 6 million out of 17.7 million vaccines have been administered.

The country expects 26 million vaccines at the end of the year with 20 million expected to be administered by January, 2022.
