The government of Ghana may introduce restrictions to movements and activities in some parts of the country as efforts to manage the spread of the novel Coronavirus.

Presently, Ghana has recorded 132 cases of the COVID19, with 4 patients dying. More than 100 of those were recorded in the last 48 hours, with the risk of community spread, increasing. Many Ghanaians have therefore called on the government to introduce a lockdown, be it partial or national, as a matter of urgency.

However, in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM, Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says the next raft of measures may include restrictions to some regions.

“So far, every step of the way, the government has been very proactive with coming up with measures to contain the situation. Those final rafts of measures now that the law has been put in place may include some restrictions in some parts of the country but whatever will be done will be with the objective of ensuring that we totally negate the potential for community spread,” he said.

Ghana’s case count now stands at 132, with the latest cases being confirmed on Thursday morning.
