Day 1: Covid-19 Lockdown In East Legon [Video]
As part of measures to curb the spread of the Coronavirus, Ghanaian Journalist Attractive Mustapha took to the streets of East-Legon, a suburb of Accra to see how people are observing the lockdown measures announced by government.
The lockdown directive started today Monday, March 30.
In about 15 minute video, Attractive Mustapha narrates that people within the East-Legon environs have shown discipline so far in the observation of the “Stay at home” measures.
East legon which is under the Ayawaso West Wuogon was named a hot-bed.
The lockdown affects areas where significant numbers of virus infections have been recorded. Some parts of the nation’s capital Accra as well as Ashanti regional capital Kumasi, Kasoa and Tema are hit with the 14-day restriction on movements.
The police has mounted roadblocks to ensure that persons who move in and out of the restricted areas are rendering essential services and are indeed exempted from the restrictions. Individuals who belong to this category are expected to show proper identification before they would have the green light to move.
