This will be his 23rd national address on the subject since Ghana recorded its first two cases of the virus in March 2020.
Today’s address as usual is scheduled for 8pm. It comes amidst high expectations for strict restrictive measures to be put in place.
While many are calling for strict restrictions, with the current Laws on covid fully enforced.
However there are mix reactions over lockdown, for instance the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) wants the country lockdown else they lay down their tools but others argue that lockdown is not an option for the current state of the economy because many Ghanaians work in the informal sector and will struggle to survive.
