Govt may not extend lockdown – Health Minister hints




The government of Ghana may not extend the 14-day partial lockdown, Minister of Health Kwaku Agyemang-Manu has revealed.

According to him, the directive has so far been successful and the lockdown has made contact tracing in the past four days very effective, hence his belief that there may not be the need for extension after it expires.

“…we pray that data that we get after the two weeks may probably give us an indication of the situation Ghana is in now. If for three-four days after doing several tests we are getting zero, zero, zero then there will not be any need for us to continue with the lockdown. That is the effort we are trying to put in and we will test a lot number of people through our contact tracing mechanism. If we are able to do that successfully I believe we’ll get data that we’ll stand on to revise the government’s decision for the lockdown of the system we have.”

The Minister of Health made the comments when a Chinese delegation donated video conference facilities to the Ministry of Health and the Greater Accra Regional Hospital(Ridge).

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo last Friday announced a lockdown of some parts of the country for two weeks effective dawn of Monday 31st March 2020.

The affected cities like Accra, Kumasi, and Tema.

“People in the affected areas must stay at home in the next two weeks. If you must go out, it should be to get essentials, go to the bank or to use a public toilet,” President Akufo-Addo said.

He also said only essential service providers and persons involved in the food value chain are exempted from the lockdown.

The President of Ghana, H.E Nana Akufo-Addo was welcomed with a disrespectful attitude from the Paramount Chief of Kpone traditional area, Nii Tetteh Otu II.

On Sunday, October 25, 2020, the President of Ghana who doubles as the flagbearer for NPP, Nana Addo was in Kpone to cut a sod for the commencement of the construction of an ultramodern hospital for the town.

However, the chief in his opening and welcome statement at the durbar made all sorts of unnecessary statements saying he does not want the president of Ghana to cut any ‘fake’ sod – without putting up an edifice. Though he was making sense, his approach was quite disrespectful.

According to an eye-witness, the Chief’s statements forced Nana Addo to plead with all media personnel present at the event to drop their cameras so he interacts with the chief. The president pleaded with the Chief to trust him for once and vote for the NPP.

Though calm was restored, the Chief later triggered another confusion during the sod-cutting ceremony as he questioned why the president did not build a storey building instead of the single-floor building.

The video below captures the moment the chief, after interrupting the sod-cutting showed another level of disrespect when the President personally invited him over to his convoy to have a conversation with him.
