Covid-19: Akuffo-Addo set to lift ban on public gathering

President Akufo-Addo has revealed plans are far advanced to ease restrictions in the fight against Covid-19 in the coming days.

The ban on public gathering including religious activities, funerals and festivals was imposed in March as one of the precautionary measures to stem the spread of the dreaded Coronavirus disease.

The President in his address to the nation during the 2020 Virtual Eid-ul-Fitr celebration indicated stakeholder consultations are taking place towards easing the restrictions.

“I expect these consultations to conclude this week, so that I can announce to Ghanaians a clear roadmap for easing the restrictions,” President Akuffo-Addo intimated.

According to him, there is the need for economic and social activities to bounce back amidst the negative impact of Covid-19.

“we have to find a way back, but in safety, for we cannot be under these restrictions forever.”

However, Ghana has recorded 6,683 cases, 1,998 recoveries and 32 deaths since the outbreak of the pandemic.
