Speaking at this morning’s Minister’s Press Briefing, Kwaku Agyeman Manu said while the threat of the Coronavirus spreading still exists, the precautions needed to stop its spread remain simple and should not be a problem for people to follow.

“They (the safety protocols) are not difficult to do so I don’t understand why some of us do not do these things. We have been thinking about what to do next to enforce strict compliance with these basic guidelines, we are working on that and believe very soon we will see the police arresting some of us who are becoming too recalcitrant.”
