This week, Christians in Ghana will join others around the world to remember the death of Jesus Christ and his resurrection three days after he was crucified.

The celebration starts with church services and ends with massive celebrations on Easter Monday.

All these activities bring a lot of people together and with COVID-19 still in Ghana, there is the possibility of this year’s Easter being a super spreader weekend.

Last year, Easter was cancelled and this year the government is putting in place directives to limit COVID-19 infections.

In a statement, the Greater Accra Minister Henry Quartey said beaches are to remain closed “until further notice.”

He tasked the MMDAs to ensure that there is enough security presence to enforce the directive.

He said other public places must sure that hand washing and all other COVID-19 safety protocols are adhered to.

Statement from the Greater Accra Regional Minister

Stay safe guys. COVID-19 is still there. As at the time of filing this report, the active case count stood at 1,844 cases.
