The ongoing global outbreak of COVID-19 infections, particularly with reported rises in new cases in China and other countries, has prompted the Ghana Health Service (GHS) to issue a warning to the populace.
The SOS warning is now required because Ghana’s comparatively low vaccination rate poses a serious threat to importation and a fresh wave of COVID-19 infection.
As a result, the GHS stated in a press release that it has worked with the Ministry of Health to carefully monitor the situation while consulting with important stakeholders.
Ghanaians who have not had the COVID-19 immunization are being advised to do so by the GHS, while those who have only received the first and second doses should get the second and booster.
