UCC suspends all International Conferences in bid to prevent coronavirus
The University of Cape Coast has currently suspended all International Conferences both on campus and outside the country in a bid to prevent coronavirus.
The PRO Vice-Chancellor of UCC Prof. Dora Francisca Edu-Buandoh says this new directive is part of measures to prevent any form of contacting the coronavirus.
President Akufo-Addo during the 63rd Independence day speech disclosed that government is discouraging all foreign travel.
He followed that with a directive to suspend foreign travels for all public officials.
Yesterday he addressed the nation on the virus and called on churches, universities and other groups that organise events that host large gatherings to put in mechanisms to protect people in the face of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.
He also disclosed that the government has committed a whopping $100 million to improve its preparedness and response to a possible outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Ghana has so far tested 54 cases but all turned out negative.
In West Africa, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Togo and recently Cote D'Ivoire have all recorded cases.
