No lockdown for now, discussions ongoing – Akufo-Addo tells TUC over coronavirus spread

By | March 26, 2020

Since Ghana recorded 68 Covid-19 cases, there has been pressure on government to announce a lockdown with immediate effect.

The Ghana Medical Association and the Trade Union Congress say such a directive will help contain the spread of the virus and prevent fear and panic.

This has led to a heated debate on social media, with another school of thought arguing that a lockdown will kill more people than the virus since appropriate measures and structures have not been put in place.

But with the country recording 132 cases, the Trade Union Congress is still urging President Akufo-Addo to consider a more aggressive approach to the fight against the coronavirus

President Akufo-Addo says government is not considering a lockdown currently because of the implications it will have on many people.

According to him, although the country is recording more coronavirus cases, government is still monitoring the situation and will implement decisions that are in the best interest of all
