He said although the President, Nana Akufo-Addo Addo in his latest address to the state on the Covid-19 situation in the country announced that mosques and churches can congregate but with a number of restrictions all geared towards preventing the further of the virus.

Speaking at an emergency meeting with Zongo Chiefs, sub imams and officials of the Metro-Health Directorate, Sheik Hassan Ali concluded that following the directives which included number of worshippers, the existence of at least ten washrooms and thermometers among others, it is best to worship at home.
