Ghana re-opens schools as Uganda signals ease to lockdown


Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo has today declared resumption of schools and colleges after closure in March due to the outbreak of the novel pandemic.

Nana urges all candidates to lead in reporting to various schools so as to catch up fast before approaching national examinations. The government also confirmed easing restrictions on weddings and political rallies.

“We also allow wedding activities and gatherings as well as political activities,” said the government.

The president of Uganda Yoweri Museveni has said that the lockdown that was imposed in the country was useful as preventive measures to curb the spread of coronavirus, but he revealed that there is need to the careful application of it.

He said that lockdown is an obstacle to development among other ways of human living.

“We applied lockdown for three crucial reasons; preventing the speed in which the pandemic spread, to detect when danger arises and how to handle it. It has helped us since we have 417 infections and no death,” said Museveni.

The Head of State said that the country cannot continue in lockdown because it pulls back the country’s economy.

“It has however reduced the rate of the spread of Covid-19. Life must go on without lockdown.”
