Government has announced an extension of the ban on public gatherings by an additional two weeks effective 1am Monday, 27th April.
President Akufo-Addo made the announcement when he addressed the nation for the 8th time since Ghana recorded its first case of the virus on March 12.
The President said the decision to extend was arrived at after careful deliberations with stakeholders.
“The strong consensus…is that the existing measures must be maintained for now until we have a firm grip on the spread of the virus. The consensus is supported by data and science and I am also very much of this view…I have by executive instrument extended by two weeks the ban on public gatherings effective tomorrow, Monday, 1:00 am, April 27, 2020,” he said.
