Meanwhile, President NanaAkufo-Addo has announced the partial lockdown imposed in Accra and Kumasi has been lifted effective Monday, April 20, 2020.
Addressing the nation in a televised broadcast, the President said the decision which takes effect from Monday, April 20, follows achievements made with aggressive contact tracing and enhanced testing capacities making it possible to contain the spread.
Four major cities, Accra, Tema, Kumasi and Kasoa, had been placed under a three-week lockdown purposely to hold the spread of the coronavirus.
But the President lifted the ban on movement on Sunday, April 19, leading to mixed response from Ghanaians.
