Mr Herbert Mensah, President and Board Chairman of Ghana Rugby Union, has called on the public and the Ghana Rugby Union to continue taking personal responsibilities in the fight against the deadly coronavirus disease.

Ghana has recorded 229 new cases of Covid-19, bringing the total tally to 12,193 cases with 58 deaths and 7,813 active cases as at June 16.

In a social media post, Mr Mensah said, “Covid-19 is a reality and urged those in the Ghana Rugby to take measures to avoid contracting the virus.

“We have watched the pandemic grow around the world and understand that it was not exclusive to everybody else, but we are also part of the global world and so we should be careful,” he said.

“In this last two to three weeks, we have seen the numbers rise in terms of testing and in terms of the number of people contracting the virus.

“I think we got 300 to 500 increments daily in terms of people having it. We are very lucky as a country that the President closed the borders and minimised risks,” Mr Mensah said.
