Leadership of various Christian organisations across Ghana will observe a three-day national prayer and fasting for protection against the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.

The event is slated for Friday, April 24 to Sunday, April 26, 2020, according to the Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana, Reverend Paul Boafo.

He made this known during a meeting with President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House, the seat of government in Accra Wednesday.

“All of us have come together to organize a 3-day national prayer and fasting programme starting Friday through to Sunday this very week which is part of our response to the Covid-19 pandemic and how Ghana is also helping to fight it,” he said.

The country’s President early last month declared a national day prayer and fasting over the Covid-19 pandemic which was duly observed on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.

The programme was to seek divine intervention as the country and the world battled the outbreak which has infected millions and claimed many lives across the world.

The country’s Covid-19 case currently stands at 1,042 cases with 99 recoveries and nine deaths.
