President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said  COVID-19 is no longer an emergency health situation in Ghana.

He said this on Sunday, May 28, 2023, during his 29th address to the nation since the virus outbreak in March 2020.

According to the president, the decision to announce the end of the emergency came after a meeting of the National Covid-19 Taskforce on May 17.

“The emergency is over. This, too, has passed,” he said.

He also added that, currently, Ghana does not have any critical cases of COVID-19.

“Currently, we do not have any critical case,” he stressed.

He, however, urged Ghanaians to continue to practice some measures adopted during the pandemic, such as regular hand washing and wearing face masks, especially for those suffering from colds and coughs, to protect others.

This comes after the World Health Organisation (WHO) announced on May 5, 2023, that COVID-19 was no longer a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).

Following the declaration by WHO, Ghana also lifted COVID-19 restrictions at all entry points of the country on May 20.

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) announced that pre-departure testing and test at all entry points were no longer a requirement for all passengers.

The GHS also said that the COVID-19 Health Declaration Form for international travellers had been suspended.
