Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo has issued new directives restricting funeral services in the West African nation to not exceed two hours with only family members present.
The directive came in as the nation grapples with surging cases of Covid-19 which have now surpassed 100,000.
Akufo-Addo has directed all ceremonies, including funerals, weddings, and other custom ceremonies not to exceed 2hours.
This he says will reduce the time frame with which individuals can be in contact thus reducing the infection rates in such gatherings.
The President further added that the after-party celebration in weddings are banned till further notice and weddings can only last at most two hours and are confined among family members only.
He also directed that all funeral gatherings must be conducted in an open space and under strict adherence to the Covid-19 regulations.
More than 1 million Ghanaians have received at least a shot of the Covid-19 vaccine and this number is expected to rise given the fact that the West African nation is expecting to innoculate over 17 million adult population very soon.
Traveling to and from Ghana is still possible given that those arriving must present a PCR test done within 72 hours before departure and must also quarantine for at least two weeks.
