Ghana’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo announced Sunday, April 19, that the 21-day lockdown of its biggest cities had been lifted after the restrictions bought the government enough time to improve its preparedness for the coronavirus pandemic. Following the announcement, Ghanaians took to the streets en masse to celebrate.

Residents of the capital, Accra, and major centers will be allowed to return to work from Monday even though other restrictions such as school closures and a ban on sport and religious meetings remain in place, the president said.

Ghana has spent the three-week lockdown to conduct more than 68,000 tests and draw-up plans to establish testing centers in all of its 16 regions, Akufo-Addo said. Local factories commenced the production of protective equipment while drone services are used to speed-up the transportation of tests, he said.

Confirmed cases reached 1,042 with nine deaths, while the results of 18,000 testing samples remain outstanding.
