Ghana President, Nana Akufo-Addo has lifted the 21 days lockdown order that was earlier ordered due to the Coronavirus crisis.
Nana Akufo-Addo made this known while addressing Ghanaians on Sunday, April 19,
2020, aa he lifted the three week restrictions imposed on the movement of
persons within some parts of the country.
Addressing the nation in a televised broadcast, the President said the decision
which takes effect from Monday, April 20, follows achievements made with
aggressive contact tracing and enhanced testing capacities which have made it
possible to contain the spread in Ghana.
Residents of the capital, Accra, and major centers will be allowed to return to work
from Monday even though other restrictions such as school closures and a
ban on sport and religious meetings remain in place.
Ghanaians have since taken to social media to react to the news.
While a majority of the citizens are excited about the ban, some half believe that the
rise in persons who have tested positive for the virus which now stands at 1,042
indicate the need for an extension of the lockdown.
