Ghana is one of the countries that mandated the use of the masks during the corona virus pandemic in the country. And also the selling of the masks created employment for many people in Ghana.
Today, the situation has changed, in a way that people no longer adhere to the wearing of nose masks and the face shield again, as the wearing of the masks ceases their breath, the nose masks is not being purchase as previously.
” we have to learn to a accept the virus as it is here to stay with as” said the Health Minister at a Press Conference in Accra.
