The one-week rites for the late Bishop Bernard Nyarko is currently underway in a very sombre atmosphere.
A video which has popped up has shown the ceremony is being organised with strict adherence to social distancing rules.
As we all know, there is a prohibition of any gathering of more than 25 people because of the Coronavirus outbreak in the country.
In the video which is the first from Bishop Nyarko's one-week rite, the family has ensured adherence with only a few people allowed in the hall to greet the few family elders seated.
Upon entry, one goes around with their elbow to greet the elders and every one of those, present, both old and young, were spotted wearing nose masks.
As it has been widely reported, Bishop Nyarko passed away at the Greater Accra Regional (Ridge) Hospital on Saturday, May 2, 2020.
The gigantic actor had been battling cancer of the colon for some time and had been going in and out of hospital for treatment.
Earlier, Bishop Nyarko's elder brother disclosed how the ceremony was going to be organised.
Speaking in an interview with SVTV and sighted by YEN.com.gh, he indicated that in adherence to the social distancing rules, both ceremonies will largely be held privately.
In the video, Isaac Darko pleaded with the many fans of his brother who would have loved to be part of the one-week ceremony to bear with them and stay home and observe on social media.
For those who would still want to attend, brother Darko stated that their time on the one-week grounds was going to be limited.
