Ghana’s Presidential adviser on Health, Dr Nsiah Asare has disclosed that the government is set to roll out the “NO VACCINATION, NO ENTRY” policy at various match venues in the Ghana Premier League.
According to him, the government is keen on the fight against COVID-19 in the wake of the new variant called Omicron which has been detected among some travellers at the Kotoka International Airport.
Speaking in an interview on measures to avert the spread of the virus, Dr Nsiah Asare reiterated the government’s position to restrict persons without the Covid-19 vaccination card from attending public events including football games.
“I’m entreating everyone to get vaccinated this month to enable everyone to go about his normal duty freely, by doing this, football fans can go to the stadium and watch their football without any restrictions because it will get to a point where people who haven’t been vaccinated can’t go to the stadium”, he told Kumasi-based radio station Fox FM.
“We are allowing everyone to get vaccinated now to allow them to go to the stadium and cheer their teams up’, he affirmed.
It will be recalled that, the Ghana Football Association (GFA), at their Ordinary session of congress a couple of months ago revealed that they are in consultations with government to increase the 25% capacity threshold by adopting the “NO Vaccination, No Entry” policy.
