Ghanaians took to the streets to celebrate after the 21-day Coronavirus lockdown order was lifted, with public gatherings still banned.
President Nana Akufo-Addo announced Sunday, April 19, in a televised address, that Ghana is lifting a 21-day lockdown of its biggest cities as they are to return to work from Monday.
But other restrictions such as school closures and a ban on sport and religious meetings remain in place, Akufo-Addo said.
Ghana have 1,042 confirmed coronavirus cases with nine deaths, while the results of 18,000 testing samples remain outstanding.
“Lifting these restrictions doesn’t mean we are letting our guard down,” said Akufo-Addo. “We’ll tailor our solution to our unique social economic and cultural condition. There’s no one-size fits all approach.”
