President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has extended the partial lockdown in Accra and Kumasi by one more week.
Residents of four cities namely Accra, Kumasi, Tema, and Kasoa were directed to stay at home last two weeks following the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
Ghana has currently recorded a total of 378 coronavirus cases, with six deaths.
Although he said the measures rolled out by his government have been “modestly successful”, the President said there is the urgent need to extend the lockdown.
“However, this fight is not yet over, and we are by no means out of the woods yet. As I said, we now have, in total, three hundred and seventy-eight (378) confirmed cases of infections, with six (6) deaths, four (4) recoveries, two (2) in critical condition, and the remaining three hundred and seventy (370) are mild cases, who are in isolation, and are either being managed at home or at treatment centres” President Akufo-Addo said.
