Revellers in the Tema Metropolis have ignored the President’s ban on the operation of beaches and pubs as they throng beaches, pubs and nightclubs to celebrate Christmas.
The ban, the President stressed, was part of measures to curb the resurgence of COVID-19.
The Ghana News Agency found a great number of residents fill up the Sakumono beach to celebrate Christmas with total disregard to the COVID-19 protocols.
The chain of pubs along the beach was in full operation during the night as revelers patronized their services.
Rounds made by the GNA within the Metropolis revealed that whiles a section of the pubs operated amidst observing COVID-19 protocols such as the washing of hands with soap, and the wearing of nose masks, others including Passions Pub at Community Sx and Barbloungh at Community Eight were operating without the protocols.
At Ritz and New York City pubs located respectively at community Eight and community Seven, residents discarded the shackles of the virus as they partied hard, danced, and jumped all over with a number of them engaging in all manner of activities without observing the protocols.
Sex workers told the GNA that they fully respected the restrictions in the early days of the spread of the virus when the government wanted to contain it, adding that they were however not prepared to sacrifice their Christmas fun as that was celebrated annually.
“We have to hustle and make money naa”. one sex worker bemoaned.
When asked if they were not afraid to contract the virus, Abigail Acquah, a reveler told GNA that “all die be die”, adding that “even the politicians did not contract the virus during their campaigning and electioneering”.
