Prez Lifts Partial Lockdown
President Nana Akufo-Addo has lifted the three-week partial lockdown imposed in the Greater Accra and Greater Kumasi districts.
This is in spite of the country’s Coronavirus case count having increased to 1,042 by the time of the lifting.
President Akufo-Addo announced this during his seventh address to the nation on the outbreak today, Sunday, April 19, 2020.
Although the lifting of the restrictions may come as a relief to the many whose livelihoods may have been hit hard following the imposition, access to some major sectors remain restricted.
The country’s borders remain closed.
Further to these, all other measures including social distancing are also to be adhered to.
Additionally, suspension of public gathering including religious meetings, still stands; likewise the closure of all educational facilities.
