President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said government will not hesitate to fully lockdown any community in which the virus is seen as becoming prevalent.
The President said even though the partial lockdown has been lifted, Government will continue to monitor various communities that have been pointed out as possible hotspots and subsequently take the needed action to stop the spread of the virus.
The President said this when he addressed the nation for the seventh time since Ghana recorded its first case of the novel Corona virus.
“It is important to stress strongly that coming out of the partial lockdown in Accra and Kumasi does not mean we are out of the pandemic. We will continue to monitor closely events in some hotspots in the Greater Accra. Metropolitan Area like Weija Gbawe, Ga East, and Ayawaso East Municipalities, and Tema Metropolis, and in the Eastern Region, like Asuoygaman and Lower Manya Krobo Districts.
“Whenever the situation so warrants, a community in which the virus is identified as becoming prevalent will be locked-down, until there is a clear understanding of the trajectory of the virus that will allow us to contain it,” he said.
