This speech comes after the Ghana Health Service (GHS) lifted all COVID-19 restrictions at entry points across the country just one week ago. The decision was influenced by the World Health Organization’s (WHO) announcement on May 5, 2023, stating that COVID-19 no longer posed a Public Health Emergency of International Concern.

According to the latest guidelines from the GHS, mandatory pre-departure testing and testing at entry points have been suspended for all passengers. Additionally, the COVID-19 health declaration form for international travelers has been temporarily halted.

It is important to note that President Akufo-Addo’s previous address to the nation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic was on March 27, 2022. Therefore, tonight’s speech is eagerly anticipated as it will provide an update on the progress made thus far and outline the government’s future plans.
