Published

on

Ghana’s caseload passed the 21, 000 marks on the 8th day of July 2020 as president Akufo-Addo addressed the nation lifting conditionally a raft of restrictions few days ago.

Schools resumed in mid-June, religious places reopened with strict conditions and the observance of health protocols. Social gatherings are to be allowed under certain conditions.

The address, the tenth by the president, also spelled out measures that the government was putting in place to curb the spread of the virus. “Consensus from stakeholder consultation recommends a phased approach to ease anti-Covid-19 restrictions,” he said.

Since we are attributed to news breaking and giving latest updates, four regions are said to be on lockdown following the rate at which these said regions keep recording higher cases as each day passes.

It is said that Greater Accra, Ashanti, Western and Central region might go on partial lockdown for the fact that these four regions mostly come first with the most recorded cases respectively.

As we speak now, Greater Accra leads all the all 16 with over 10,000 cases followed by the Ashanti region, Western and Central.

Although people find it difficult to cope with lockdown measure, the only option left now to put the deadly virus under control is to put the hotspot regions on lockdown partially as the Minister of Information recently hinted.

The Information Minister has said the reason for imposing the partial lockdown restrictions in the 4 regions was to carry out enhanced contact tracing and testing activities to determine the infection rate of Covid-19.

Meanwhile,it is not all confirmed that only four regions will be locked.
