It’s been 6 months since the novel Coronavirus first hit the shores of Ghana. Many sectors of the nation were hit hard by the pandemic. The country even had to go under a lockdown for some time. However, the tide kept turning for humanity and easing of restrictions started.
In Ghana some sectors of the economy were opened and final year students of the various levels of education were made to go back to school and complete their studies. Tonight Sunday August 30, 2020 at 8:00pm the President, Nana Akufo-Addo will address the nation on the measures taken the spread of the Coronavirus. Ghanaians are optimistic of many things.
Ghanaians expect the government to officially declare our airspace open. Last week the aviation authorities conducted checks at the Kotoka International Airport to ascertain whether it was ready. All things been equal the airport will be open from September 1. Ghanaians will also be expecting to see if the country’s land borders will also be opened to travelers.
Again the education sector is expected to feature. Private teachers have been complaining of not receiving enough since the closure of schools. Aside them teachers from all sides also remain hopeful of returning to the classrooms.
Many look to see if the President will announce the reopening of schools. Will the education sector open fully or it will come in stages?
Lastly will churches be open to children or still the Sunday school services will be suspended? Parents have been made to contemplate whether they have to go to church or stay behind with the young ones, especially for those who have no one to take care of them.
