There will be lock down if covid-19 cases keep rising – Oppong Nkrumah

Member of Parliament for Ofoase/Ayirebi constituency, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has hinted that the President will lockdown the country if Covid-19 cases keep rising.

Meanwhile, Ghana has recorded a total number of 60,794 cases with 57, 141 recoveries. The death toll stands at 367.

According to the Ghana Health Service (GHS), as of Monday, January 25, 2021 the country has recorded 3,286 active cases.

Information Minister-designate speaking to the media today said, “There is a possibility of a lockdown and other restrictions. If this trend continues, then yes that is where we are heading.

“I have to be very clear on that one that more restrictions could be introduced if this trend continues. We are being reminded that we all need to be doing the things we were doing, in the beginning, to ensure that this third rise is quickly dealt with because the dynamics of this third rise appear to be different from the first one.

“So especially if these numbers go up this way then just like the President himself articulated, then we are heading for more restrictions even if it means reviewing some Legal Instruments, yes that is where we will be heading.”
