In a statement, Mr Attafuah-Danso said ” The party urges all to take good care of themselves, families and friends. Also, everyone should ensure that they submit to the directives and safety protocols outlined by their respective countries to contain the pandemic.”
Explaining how President Akufo-Addo is fighting the pandemic in Ghana, Mr Attafuah-Danso said: “The bold steps by the President with the support of his appointees and the good people of Ghana are yielding positive results, reflecting in lower imported cases and community spread of the virus.”

National leadership, led by the Chairman and General Secretary of the party has made donations on behalf of the party and are supporting efforts of the government to fight the COVID-19 scourge.”
He noted that the external branches will be brought up to speed with any decision of the party regarding programmes and activities soon as the pandemic is brought under control.
