President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has commended Ghanaians for complying with the partial lockdown directives announced last Friday as a measure to curb the spread of the covid-19 pandemic.

Despite some individuals flouting the orders and making the work of the security agencies difficult , most Ghanaians who were affected by the lockdown have been law-abiding, the President noticed.

''They heeded the call, and they have proven, so far, to each other, and, indeed, to the entire world, that being a Ghanaian means we look out for each other. Yes, there are a few who continue to find ways to be recalcitrant, but the greater majority have complied, and have done so with calm and dignity. Tonight, I say thank you to each and every one of you law-abiding citizens''.

The President made this known during his 5th address to the nation on updates to Ghana’s enhanced response to the Coronavirus pandemic, on Sunday 5th April 2020.

By Executive Instrument,the President has extended the closure of Ghana's borders for two (2) more weeks, until further notice.

''The data tells us that the overwhelming majority of confirmed cases came from travellers or from people who have come into contact with travellers''.

The President indicated that the nation is ''about to enter a critical phase of our fight in the coming week, as the Ghana Health Service is due to receive the results of some fifteen thousand, three hundred and eighty-four (15,384) out of nineteen thousand, two hundred and seventy-six (19,276) persons who have been reached through contact tracing''.

''It is the results of these tests that will determine our future course of action. Government’s policy and measures will continue to be driven by the science in this matter''.

In the course of the coming week, a determination will be made as to whether or not to extend the duration of the two-week restriction on movement, and the implementation or otherwise of any more enhanced measures to deal with the virus, according to President Akufo Addo.
