4. Ghana makes gains in malaria control
Ghana has made gains in the fight against malaria in the last decade, according to figures from the National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP). The Programme Manager of the NMCP, Dr. Keziah Malm, said malaria-related deaths across all ages in the country were reduced by 89 percent from 2,799 in 2012 to 308 at the end of 2020.

5. Giroud unlikely to renew Chelsea contract
Olivier Giroud is considering his options regarding his next move and is reluctant to renew his Chelsea contract, having fallen down the pecking order at the club. The Blues are willing to open discussions over a new deal for the 34-year-old, but it would only be a short-term extension and require him to agree to a bit-part role.
The Frenchman’s current contract expires in the summer. Several clubs have started to make contact over signing him. Giroud has not yet decided where he wants to go next.
