Ghana’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo has said that scientists are investigating the presence and extent of spread of new variants of the coronavirus in the country.

The new variants of the virus are reportedly responsible for the surge in Covid-19 cases in the country.

Ghana has so far confirmed over 56,000 cases of the virus with current active cases now at 1770.

There are over 300 deaths so far, according to President Akufo-Addo who delivered a national televised address on Sunday evening.

Several countries including those in Africa are beginning to issue new restrictions following the confirmation of new variants of the virus.

But Ghana is going ahead with the reopening of schools on Monday as millions of school children return to the classroom.

President Akufo-Addo however said security forces will be enforcing strictly the law requiring citizens to wear nosemasks at all times in public.

The country is also yet to secure vaccines for mass vaccination against the virus, but the president assured that will happen in the coming months.
