Political rallies not causing COVID-19 spikes


Summary short_text

The Ghana Health Service has dismissed suggestions that political rallies are causing a spike in COVID-19 cases across the country.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Patrick Kuma Aboagye, said scientific data does not support claims that the spike in COVID-19 in the country are as a result of political rallies.
"For the rallies, it's about science and data and there's no evidence that any rally has led to an outbreak but even in all that, if the rallies were causing the outbreaks, the rallies don't only occur in Accra because the larger rallies occur outside Accra and we're not seeing any outbreaks there but that is not to say that we're not being cautious".
