The beaches of Korle Gonno full of activities despite the warnings
The beaches of the Korlegonno enclave are hosting their Boxing Day entertainment, receiving all classes of revelers despite warnings from the Grand Regional Coordinating Council and the Ghana Health Service.
In addition to going to the various beaches, disregarding the caution of the RCC, most revelers also did not follow COVID-19 protocols, thus putting themselves in danger.
The Ghana News Agency’s visit to the beaches reported that Korle Gonno Beach Resort, Nordsee, Sunset Beach and Feehi Valley View, all located in the Korle Gonno enclave, were operating at full capacity.
Partygoers have been seen lining up at the gates to buy their tickets, swim in the pools and the sea, or enjoy the music and drinks of their performers through huge loud speakers.
Unfortunately, most of the revelers swam together, ate and drank together, or danced together without nasal masks, defying both nasal mask and social distancing protocols.
The GNA did not see revelers washing their hands with soap and running water on any of the beaches.
Patience Amerly Annor, a party girl told the GNA she had never heard of any announcements about beach closings, although she admitted it was dangerous, given the peak of the COVID-19 virus.
Gifty Nartey, meanwhile, told the GNA that it was unfair to ban beach operations on Christmas because that was the only time they were having fun.
Meanwhile, beach managers were quiet about why they defied the authorities’ warning.
“What do they want us to do again after having closed our places for almost two years,” commented one of the managers who pleaded anonymity to the GNA.
Another disturbing sight was that of the teenagers, who were spotted drinking alcoholic beverages on the beaches.
Apart from the private security in charge of various beaches, the GNA never spotted any police or any other security element.
