According to reports, wildlife rangers were tracking the family of elephants as they moved through the road during the day, prompting them to block the road so as to prevent any accidents or blockages.

Pratya Chutipat Sakul who filmed the scene said the elephants were moving calmly and barely noticed the humans adding she was happy to witness the beautiful scene.

Meanwhile, Kruger National Park in South Africa shared photos of lions basking on tarmacked roads.

The animals had taken control of the streets following a lockdown in South Africa which prevented people from visiting even the parks.

In another report, it is quite unbelievable how some Ghanaians can just defy lockdown directives and do the contrary of protocols set in place to protect their very self from harm's way.
