The President of the Republic, H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will this evening address the nation and give update on the fight against novel covid19 pandemic and things the government has put in place in fighting the disease.
The President on Friday 27th March 2020 announced a partial lockdown which affected major parts of Greater Accra and Greater Kumasi. The President announced the partial lockdown on Friday night which is to last for fourteen days.
According to the President, it is subjected to constant review whenever the need arise.
Some exemption were made by the President but it seems some Ghanaians have gone overboard to the directives of the president, so some Ghanaians are anticipating that the restrictions may be extended.
Yesterday, the President extended the closure of all borders to the country for another two weeks and by so, some Ghanaians are anticipating the lockdown may also be extended.
It was two regions that the virus was detected, thus, Greater Accra and Ashanti Region respectively, but as it stands, we have recorded additional three Regions from which virus has affected some people, and with this that the lockdown may be extended and possibly, countrywide, with strict measures to make sure everyone complies to curb the spread of the virus.
The President is expected to address the nation around 21:00GMT this evening.
Ghana has 214 confirmed covid19 cases now.
