Ghana has joined the ranks of countries around the world that are enforcing some form of restriction on movement with the hope of slowing down the spread of SARS-CoV-2 – the virus that caused COVID-19.
The restrictions on movement in Ghana are scheduled to last for two weeks as the Ghana Health Service and Ministry of Health race to catch up with the marauding virus.
An unconfirmed post flying on social media has it that, the MCE of Bolgatanga, Upper East Region of Ghana, has taken a more further step by releasing 350 wild dogs on the streets just so the people of bolgatanga takes the restriction of staying at home serious.
Bolgatanga, colloquially known as Bolga, is a town and the capital of the Bolgatanga Municipal District and Upper East Region of Ghana, adjacent to the border with Burkina Faso. Bolgatanga has over 2012 settlement and a population of about 66,685 people. Bolgatanga is 161 km (about 100 miles) to the north of Tamale.
According to the post flying on social media, the 350 wild dogs released by the MCE has been reduced to 11 overnight even though the whole community is under lockdown.
