Ghana is one of the countries that has low infection rate since the outbreak. The government has given the green light for schools to fully resume across the country. Currently, Ghana has seen a sudden increase of covid-19 cases with ghana recording more than 200 covid-19 cases daily.
The information minister kojo oppong- nkrumah has hinted a possible lockdown in restrictions to be enforced if the cases continues to rise. He also urged the public follow all covid-19 protocols put in place which is wearing your nose mask in public, washing your hands for at least 20 seconds and then practicing social distancing to be able to defeat the virus.
President Akufo-Addo addressing Ghanaians on the measures to Curb the Covid-19 pandemic said, “the virus has not changed…and the reduction in compliance with preventive protocols account is increasing.”
He announced that there could be a possible second lockdown should the coronavirus situation in the country continue to worsen.
The address, the 23rd by the president, also spelled out measures that government was putting in place to curb the spread of the virus. “Consensus from stakeholder consultation recommend a phased approach to easing anti Covid-19 restrictions,” he said.
