Ghana becomes the first African country to end the COVID-19 lockdown

Ghana has been the first African nation to lift the three-week coronavirus crisis lockdown that has been in place since March 30, 2020.

Ghana’s two biggest cities, Accra and Kumasi will witness the end of the lockdown starting 1 AM local time on Monday April 20.

Many have welcomed the move especially people belonging to low-income group, while others have heavily criticized the move of the West Africa nation’s President Nana Akufo-Addo pertaining to the high-risk factor.

The WHO and other international organisations have been requesting the countries worldwide to extend the lockdown period as the risk persist.

The crumbling health infrastructure of most of the African countries takes the risk mark of the coronavirus outbreak to a new level and Ghana’s decision to open the lockdown could have negative potential as well.
