Nana Akufo-Addo, President of Ghana has announced an additional one-week extension to the lockdown in the country’s two main regions. 

According to him, it is to help contain the spread of Coronavirus. Nana Akufo-Addo, in a late broadcast on Thursday, said the two-week restriction on movement around the capital Accra and in the Kumasi area would be prolonged from Monday, April 13. 

In his words: “It is important that we stay the course, and bear with the difficulties that come with it. “The final result, hopefully, will be freedom from the virus.” 

Akufo-Addo also promised that the government would absorb the whole of the electricity bills of the poorest citizens and 50% for other residents and businesses for three months to ease the pain. Ghana has so far registered 378 COVID-19 cases. Six deaths have so far been recorded.
