President Cyril Ramaphosa said early data shows that while the Omicron variant of Covid-19 appears to be more transmissible, hospital admission rates remained stable.
He was speaking after the start of high-level talks between South Africa and Ghana at Jubilee House in Accra on Saturday.
Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo joined Ramaphosa in lambasting the bans by Western countries, saying they were a form of immigration control imposed by Western countries.
Ramaphosa told media that he spoke to SA's Health Minister Joe Phaala, on Saturday, who said while the Omicron variant appeared to be more transmissible, hospital admission rates were not at alarming levels.
It’s for this reason, he said, people should not panic. "We got to get vaccination levels up. This is where more developed economies have been so greedy where they hoarded vaccines and not really made vaccines available.
Ghana, officially the Republic of Ghana, is a country in West Africa. It spans the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean to the south, sharing borders with the Ivory Coast in the west, Burkina Faso in the north, and Togo in the east.
With their advanced weapons and based on a central authority, they easily invaded and occupied the lands of the local people ruled by the Tendamba (land god priests), established themselves as the rulers over the locals, and made Gambaga their capital. The death of Naa Gbewaa caused civil war among his children, some of whom broke off and founded separate states including Dagbon, Mamprugu, Mossi, Nanumba and Wala.
From the 13th century, Akans emerged from what is believed to have been the Bonoman area, to create several Akan states, mainly based on gold trading. These states included Bonoman (Brong-Ahafo Region), Ashanti (Ashanti Region), Denkyira (Western North region), Mankessim Kingdom (Central region), and Akwamu (Eastern region). By the 19th century, the territory of the southern part of Ghana was included in the Kingdom of Ashanti, one of the influential states in sub-saharan Africa prior to the onset of colonialism.
The government of the Ashanti Empire operated first as a loose network, and eventually as a centralised kingdom with an advanced, highly specialised bureaucracy centred in the capital city of Kumasi. Prior to Akan contact with Europeans, the Akan people created an advanced economy based on principally gold and gold bar commodities then traded with the states of Africa.
