Coronavirus: Ghana President, Nana Akufo-Addo lift 21-days lockdown order

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.
