The Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference (CCBC) has issued a press conference reacting to the disregard for the observance of the COVID-19 protocols generally across the country.
According the to Catholic Bishops, they have “observed with great concern the high level of disregard for the observance of the COVID-19 protocols at the recent New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary primaries, the ongoing voters registration exercise, the announcement of the running mate of the Flag-bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the party’s headquarters in Accra yesterday and some other public gatherings.”
The statement also added that, “as much as we acknowledge that the recovery rates are equally impressive, the increase in the positive case count is not good news for us as a country. The same can be said about the mortality rate which is also on the increase and therefore conference appeals to all to accept the reality of COVID-19 and thus modify their behaviours to conform to the safety guidelines.”
