4. Ghana: Second wave COVID-19 likely – GHS warns
Ghana risks the second wave of COVID-19 if the public continues to loosen precautionary measures. The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has warned that a second wave of the pandemic can be more terrible than the first if people do not keep to the safety protocols. The Director of the Health Promotion Division of the GHS and Leader of the Risk Communication for COVID-19 National Task Force, Dr. Dacosta Aboagye, said the posture of the public was causing a gradual rise in active cases, and that if care was not taken, the nation would see a major rise soon.
Active cases of the disease had risen from 309 to 589 within the last few weeks, with the number of deaths standing at 320.
5. Russia’s ban appeal set to be heard by the court of arbitration for Sport
Russia’s appeal against its four-year ban from all major sporting events will be heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) from Monday. In December 2019, Russia’s Anti Doping Agency (RUSADA) was declared non-compliant for manipulating laboratory data handed over to investigators the previous January.
The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) had controversially reinstated Russia in 2018 after a three-year suspension for its vast state-sponsored doping scandal. But WADA’s executive committee made the unanimous decision to impose the ban, which bars Russia from competing in the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, set to be held next year, and football’s 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The appeal hearing, which is not open to the public, is scheduled to take place at an undisclosed venue in Lausanne, Switzerland, until Thursday. A decision will be announced at a later date.
