Covid-19: Over 7million Vaccines To Be Received Before The Year Ends – Kuma-Aboagye

Covid-19: GHS To Start Immunisation Exercise For Unvaccinated Citizens On Friday

The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service has disclosed that the country is expecting to receive over 7 million Covid-19 vaccines before the year ends.

With this consignment, the total number of vaccines received in Ghana since the onset of the pandemic will be 20million. He said, it is now the responsibility of Ghanaians to get vaccinated.

“…more than 7.4 million doses which are supposed to come in between now and probably December. We may even get more than this and that will take us to about 20 million of vaccines that have come into the country before the end of the year. What is left for us is to take it,” Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye said.

Speaking at the Ministry of Information’s regular press briefings on Sunday, November 28, 2021, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye mentioned that Ghana had more doses in stock as “we have received a significant number of inflows of vaccines” over the past four weeks.

Dr. Kuma-Aboagye reiterated that the Food and Drugs Authority has approved five vaccines for emergency use in the country.

These five vaccines are AstraZeneca, Moderna, Pfizer, Sputnik-V, and Johnson & Johnson.

According to Dr. Kuma-Aboagye, about 12.3 million doses of various vaccines types have been received.

Out of that number, about 7.1 million have been distributed with about 5.2 million doses currently in stock.

Whilst it may seem that the country will not achieve its target of vaccinating 20million of the population before the year ends, the GHS boss said various strategies are being adopted to ensure that this target is achieved.

He disclosed that vaccination centres are being set up at strategic places to make it more convenient for the public.

“Our strategy remains the same. One is to be strategic about where all our facilities are providing vaccination. We are also going around taking the vaccine to the people. We are also doing mobile vaccination where people will go to the lorry park and see a car parked giving a vaccination.

“We are doing a campout. There are places where you can’t go and come back the same day. The team will go there, set up a camp, stay there and vaccinate the people.

Meanwhile, Dr. Kuma-Aboagye indicated that the daily vaccination numbers are soaring.

He mentioned that “we have reached about 142,000 doses a day and that is how we are going to continue to ensure that we live up to expectation.”

Kurt Zouma's Brother Suspended By Club For Taping 'Cat Abuse Video'

Kurt Zouma’s younger brother, 23-year-old Yoan, has been suspended by his club, Dagenham and Redbridge over filming his brother’s cat maltreatment footage that has since received massive outrage.

It has emerged that Yoan took delight in filming his elder brother and West Hamstar Kurt punching and kicking one of his pet cats.

In a statement, the club said; “Dagenham & Redbridge FC would again like to reiterate that it condemns any form of cruelty towards animals and fully understands the reaction of many of its supporters.

“The Club has therefore decided that until the RSPCA has completed its investigations, Yoan will not play for Dagenham & Redbridge in any competitive match.”

“However, Dagenham & Redbridge FC would again like to reiterate that it condemns any form of cruelty towards animals and fully understands the reaction of many of its supporters.

Jackie Chan Carries Olympic Torch Atop Great Wall

Jackie Chan Carries Olympic Torch Atop Great Wall
The Olympic torch relay began its second day on Thursday atop the Great Wall.

Hong Kong actor Jackie Chan and Chinese Olympic medallists took turns carrying the flame along a route shortened to three days because of COVID-19.

The relay for the torch that will open the Feb. 4-20 Winter Games is much more modest than the globe-spanning relay for Beijing’s 2008 Summer Games, a tour that was disrupted by protests.

Table tennis Olympic gold medallists Ma Long and Wu Jingyu, a two-time gold medallist in taekwondo, were among those carrying the red-and-silver spiral torch along the Badaling section of the Great Wall. The morning temperature was a bracing -11 Celsius (12 Fahrenheit).

Chan, 67, an action and comedy film star known for his support of the Beijing government, was identified in the official press release by his Chinese name Chen Gangsheng.

“I woke up at 4 a.m. This is my fourth Olympics. I’m very happy. I’m also cold!”, Chan told reporters after his run along the wall.

Badaling, the section of the wall most often visited by tourists, is 70 km (45 miles) northwest of central Beijing in the Yanqing district, near the Olympics sliding and Alpine skiing venues. It was built around 1500 A.D. during the Ming dynasty.

Later on Thursday, the torch will be taken to Zhangjiakou in neighbouring Hebei province, where most Olympic snow events will take place. The relay will end with the lighting of the Olympic cauldron at Friday’s opening ceremony.

Because of Covid-19, the games are taking place inside a “closed loop” keeping competitors and other Olympics personnel away from the public, and will be attended only by small, selected audiences.

Thomas Partey Pens Down Apology To Arsenal And Ghanaians

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has apologised for his red card that will see him missing this weekend’s clash against Burnley at the Emirates Stadium.

The Ghanaian, who darted back from the Africa Cup of Nations on Thursday to make the Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg for the Gunners, was giving his marching orders following two yellow cards in the final three minutes of the match.

Partey only landed back in London earlier in the afternoon following Ghana’s early exit at AFCON but he was determined to help his side reach Wembley, where Chelsea awaited the winners of last night’s tie.

After initially starting the match on the bench, Partey entered the fray in the second half but his commitment to the cause backfired when a late lunge on Fabinho saw him dismissed.

The powerhouse midfielder has since taken to Instagram to apologise to Arsenal supporters, explaining the thinking behind his unexpected cameo at the Emirates Stadium.

He wrote: “Am responsible for anything that happened and will take all the critiques, I should get more intelligent not to get in a challenge already booked but this is my personality, I like to fight for every ball…’
