Minutes after President Akufo-Addo announced that the lifting of the 21-day lockdown in some metropolis in the country, social media users have reacted angrily.
For most of the social media users, considering that the country’s cases of Covid-19 have leapt to over a 1000 cases, there was no need to remove the lockdown in Greater Accra and Kumasi, Tema and Kasoa.
The restrictions imposed on the movement of persons in these area was part of efforts to control the spread of the coronavirus.
The President explained that the three-week lockdown has achieved it’s objectives, among which was the need to scale up tracing and testing people who may have come into contact with those who had already tested positive.
Addressing the nation in his seventh televised broadcast since the first confirmed cases of the disease in the middle of March, the President said the decision to suspend the lockdown will take effect from Monday, April 20, 2020.
But some social media users say it only means Ghanaians are left to their own destinies.
