Lockdown in Accra and Kumasi extended by seven more days as coronavirus cases increase to 378

“President Akufo-Addo is a coronavirus hero”

President Nana Akufo-Addo has extended the restrictions on movements in Accra and Kumasi by one more week from Monday, April 13, 2020.

Delivering his sixth address on the progress of the national campaign to defeat the  Coronavirus pandemic in Ghana, the President said on Thursday that although the efforts have been successful, the country was not yet out of the woods.

Two weeks ago, a 14-day restriction on movements in parts of the Greater Accra Region and Kumasi, in the Ashanti Region was implemented to control the spread of Coronavirus.

The lockdown has been implemented in parts of the country where significant numbers of virus infections have been recorded.

The President also said in the televised address on Thursday that the 14-day lockdown, although harsh, has been critical in beating down Ghana’s Coronavirus case count.

As of Tuesday, April 7, the case count stood at 313 with six deaths and four recoveries.

Ghana’s Coronavirus case count stands at 378 as of Thursday, April 9, 2020.
