The Minister for Health, Kwaku Agyemang Manu has announced that the government is ever ready to shiploads of Ghanaian staple foods like “shito, gari and kenkey that can last over 2 weeks without going bad”, to the over 300 Ghanaian students who have been trapped in the Chinese province of Wuhan after the outbreak of the Coronavirus disease.

President Nana Addo commissioned and distributed 307 brand new ambulances this year.

Sharing photos from a special ceremony, he wrote;

“On Tuesday, 28th January, 2020, I commissioned and presented 307 brand new, state-of-the-art ambulances, fitted with advanced life support equipment and tracking devices, to be distributed to 275 constituencies, i.e. 1-Constituency-1-Ambulance, to be managed by the National Ambulance Service, and the remainder of 32 ambulances to the headquarters of the Service. This is the single largest presentation of ambulances made to the Ghana Ambulance Service, since its establishment in 2004.

As against the scenario whereby 1 ambulance served approximately 524,000 people at the end of December 2016, today, we have a much-improved ratio of 1 ambulance serving approximately 84,000 people.”
