According to the information sighted by straightnewsonline on social media, former Director-General of Ghana Health Service, Professor Agyeman Badu Akosa has expressed his displeasure about the partial lockdown lifted. He sees it as very risky looking at the surge in COVID-19 cases from 1 to 1024 and still counting.
According to the health expert, Akufo Addo has disappointed Ghanaians by lifting the lockdown. Merely restrictions on public gathering and the wearing of nose masks are not substantial enough to curb the spread of coronavirus.
Professor Agyeman Badu Akosa the government to revert to lockdown to help deal with the pandemic. The indications are not good for lifting the lockdown
Currently, some of the COVID-19 patients who were under treatment have left without any trace of their whereabouts. No one knows where they are yet. These runaway patients will definitely interact with people and so there will be an issue of contacts that puts Ghanaians at risk. Technically, managing the case in Ghana has not been easy and so if the lockdown is lifted the tendency for the spread is high.
Well, I honestly would wish that the government would revisit its decision and come out with a new strategy that includes partial or full lockdown. All Ghanaians must adhere to the preventive measures of social distancing, regular use of sanitizers, and regular washing of hands with soap under running water.
