Barely a week ago, the Ghanian Government lifted restrictions on movement in the country, but latest reports from that country says it has recorded  271 confirmed cases after President Akufo Addo lifted the lock down or Accra and Kumasi.

The latest figure was confirmed on Sunday bringing  the total number of cases recorded in the country to 1,550.

Last week, Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo lifted a three-week lock down on the basis of “improved coronavirus testing.”

At the time the president lifted the restriction, Ghana had 1,042 cases of the disease.

With an additional 271 new infections, it seems that relaxing the lock down so soon has a more devastating effect on the citizenry.

Ghana is the first to lift the restriction on movement in the West African region.

Other countries around the world are taking precautionary measures as regards lifting the restrictions to avoid a second wave of the pandemic.
