Several parts of Ghana including Accra, Tema, Obuasi and Kumasi have been on a partial lockdown since March 30, 2020, according to a directive by the president.

It would be recalled that on March 27, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo indicated that the lockdown is enforced in a bid to help contain the spread of COVID-19.
