The once busy and choked streets of Accra are now left deserted.

President Nana Akufo-Addo declared a two-week lockdown of Accra, Tema, and Kumasi.

In the President‘s brief, he said “The oath of office I swore on February 2017 demands that I dedicate myself to the service of Ghanaian people. It is my job to protect you and I am determined to do just that. All what the government is doing is seeking to achieve five targets….we have succeeded in stopping the importation of the disease into the country.”
