YEN.com.gh is in possession of a video that appears to be compilations of different aspects but depicting a clear message.
A message in the video shows it was directed to those who were convinced the 2-week lockdown was coming to an end.
The message called on such people to listen to the song which was playing in the background as if to say they need to change their mindset.
The song was a popular Gospel tune released by ace Ghanaian musician, Seth Frimpong, and titled, ‘This Is Just the Beginning’.
It played for a few minutes and later gave way to a man wearing a suit, seated on a chair and silently sobbing.
The impression created was that there is a likelihood of another extension of the partial lockdown as a result of the outbreak of the coronavirus.
The president, Akufo-Addo, on Thursday, April 9, 2020, revealed that the government has extended the lockdown in a bid to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
He added that the country’s borders would remain closed and aside from the previous packages, Ghanaians would now enjoy subsidized electricity tariffs.
According to him, the poor and vulnerable in the country would pay nothing for electricity from April to June 2020.
Residential and commercial users would, however, pay 50% of the cost of electricity.
Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has announced that Ghana's COVID-19 case count has jumped from 313 to 378.
According to him, the additional cases recorded were from the samples collected and tested from the contacts traced.
The president reiterated that 14,611 contacts of samples collected were sent to the laboratory for testing.
