President Akufo-Addo has indicated that his government will determine whether or not to extend the lockdown imposed on parts of the country next week.
In a televised address to the nation on Sunday [April 5, 2020], the president noted that the decision will largely be based on the results of the over 19,000 tests that have been conducted due to the enhanced contact tracing exercise.
He said the decision of the government on the matter will be driven by science and available data.
Akufo-Addo noted that 15,385 out of 19,276 contact persons had been reached through the enhanced contact tracing and their samples have been taken.
“[This] will determine our future terms of action,” he stressed.
