Ghana’s presidential advisor for COVID-19 Dr Nsiah Asare has revealed that the government is set to roll out measures to prevent fans who haven’t been vaccinated from attending league games to support their teams.
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 in some countries.
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.
