Social Media On Fire As Partial Lockdown Is Lifted

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has lifted the ban on restricted movement in some parts of the country including Greater Accra region and Kumasi.

According to the President, the decision to enforce the three-week lockdown was taken to give government the opportunity to try to contain the spread of the virus, scale-up effectively the tracing of persons who had come into contact with infected persons, test them for the virus, and quarantine those who tested positive and isolate them for treatment.

After the announcement, the news seems to have been met with a mix reaction from all quarters of the country.

Since last night, I’ve read some of you joke or perhaps express through jokes your belief that “Akufo-Addo wants us to die.” Basically, there is a tendency to think that lifting the lockdown was a bigger calculable risk thing than locking down things.

I’m not sure that’s it.

My only fear is the community spread cos many people will move to the villages especially with the fear of a possible future lockdown and if they happen to be asymptomatic, they’ll get to spread the virus before everyone gets to know.#JoySMS

Dear Mr President @NAkufoAddo , pls I hope you were NOT pressured to lift #TheLockdown ? The science you referred to must prove effective, lest you’ve just sent us to the slaughter house ! May God be with us #JoyNews #joysms @EmefaApawu
