Ghana is still leading the way in COVID management

The head of the Delegation of the European Union to Ghana, Irchad Razaaly, has commended Ghana for its exemplary leadership in management of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The EU envoy in Ghana on Friday (18 March), said the bloc has so far given Ghana the equivalent of US$85 million in grants to help fight the disease.

“Culture is what brings us all together as a people and continent. The EU supports the idea that Ghana is a cultural hub for West Africa and Africa has a stimulus package to help in dealing with the pandemic.

“The way Ghana managed the COVID [pandemic] is really commendable … when you compare the lives lost in Ghana to the rest of Africa and the world, then you’ll see how well Ghana did,” Razaaly said.

“We have financed a significant amount of money to Ghana in the last eight months with about US$85 million grants given to Ghana as a stimulus package to help post-COVID,” he said.
