Ghana’s president Nana Akufo-Addo has announced a three-month extension incentive package for healthcare workers, the BBC reports.

The health workers will not pay income tax for July, August and September. They will also continue enjoying a 50% increase in their basic salaries.

The incentives were introduced about three months ago when the West African country recorded its first Covid-19 case.

In a televised address on Sunday, President Akufo-Addo said the incentives are to motivate the healthcare workers during the ongoing pandemic.

A total of 294, 8687 tests have been conducted.

The country has eased restrictions on religious gatherings and schools have reopened for final year students. However, its borders remain closed.
