Mr. Amofah stated that the authority received a call from the Ghana Swimming Federation and are looking into their case and will need more time before adding any other sporting disciplines to what has already been released.

“We still doing further consultations, we had a call from Swimming Federation, they were saying theirs is also an individual sport but we are not to sure the nature of this COVID virus, whether it thrives in water. So, we need a little more time to be able to add other disciplines to what we have put out there.”
