Coronavirus: GMA Calls For Total Nationwide Lockdown

The Ghana Medical Association is calling on the government to impose a nationwide total lockdown to fully tackle the spread of coronavirus in the country.

“I think the conversation should shift to the point that now we need to be tackling the whole country in general. Whether there are recorded cases or not. I think the whole country would have to come under some degree of restriction. It shouldn’t be limited to Accra and Kumasi. This is what we requested for some weeks ago and people started calling us all sort of names”.

Dr. Frank Serebour, Vice President of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) said in an interview with Kwame Adinkrah on ‘Pure Morning Drive’ Tuesday.

Reacting to the current lockdown in the country he said:

‘I don’t call this a lockdown, honestly. What we’re experiencing is restriction. Even this restriction is very lax. This fuse into our earlier call. When we first brought it up, Some wise people said we were not wise enough to request for a lockdown. Kwame, you can tell that as we speak now, all the other regions have recorded cases including my hometown- Bekwai. Therefore, it is important to consider restrictions in the whole country’
