Network challenges frustrate COVID vaccination exercise

    Network challenges have marred the ongoing AstraZeneca vaccination exercise against the COVID-19 pandemic at some centers in the Kumasi metropolis of the Ashanti Region on Wednesday, 1 September 2021.

    People were seen stranded at the centers due to network challenges.
