A Senior Research Fellow at the Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research (KCCR) has called for a lock down in some parts of the country.

Dr John Amoasi has observed that a lockdown is imminent as that is the only way to stem the spread of the virus.

“There is nothing else which will stem the tide, the numbers will not go down until we take deceive measures, this is going to happen sooner than later,” he said.

There has been a sharp rise in the cases with more death being recorded in the last few weeks.

The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has currently confirmed all 16 regions of the country have recorded cases. But, Dr Amoasi believes a lockdown in major hot spots will change the trend.

Dr Amoasi wants people to quit the thought that the figures will go down as time passes.

“I keep hearing the numbers will go down, the numbers will not go down until we take decisive measures.”
