President Akufo-Addo has lifted the lockdown in Ghana but says ‘we’ll not let our guards down’


Ghana has lifted the three-week partial lockdown imposed in parts of the country to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus which has now infected more than thousand people in the country.

The decision to lift the movement of restrictions in Accra, Tema, Kasoa and Kumasi from 1:00 a.m. on Monday April 20, President Nana Akufo-Addo explained was informed by current data backed by science.

He said the lifting of the lockdown “does not mean we are out of the pandemic” yet.

“I must make it clear, lifting these restrictions does not mean we will let our guards down,” Nana Akufo-Addo said in a televised address to the nation this evening at 9pm to update Ghanaians on the current measures being taken to contain the deadly virus in Ghana.
