Contrary to suggestions of the announcement of a possible lockdown by the President later tonight, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has assured that no such thing is on the cards as the president prepares to address the nation on further steps taken to deal with the increasing number of coronavirus cases in the country.

Many have called for a shutdown, either partial or complete, of institutions for fear of a further spread of COVID-19, particularly following the surge in confirmed cases to 19.

With the possibility that several hundreds of people might have made contact with the case-patients, the country has shifted gear to panic mode amidst pressure on government to institue a lockdown just as some other countries have done.

But in a twitter post monitored, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah denied claims the country will be shut down.

“His Excellency will address the nation tonight with latest updates and measures. But no, he will not be announcing a lockdown, so don’t panic,” he tweeted.
