President Akufo-Addo says he will soon announce an end to restrictions imposed on the public to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.

However, that will happen after the modalities for which the restrictions were imposed have been followed satisfactorily by the public.

These include the guidelines for maintaining proper hygiene practices in addition to the use of hand sanitizer and social distancing.

Addressing the nation in a televised broadcast Sunday, April 26, President Akufo-Addo hinted these remaining sanctions may soon come to an end.

Last week, the President lifted a three-week restriction imposed on the movements of people in four major cities- Accra, Tema, Kasoa, and Kumasi- which he said, enabled health authorities to scale up tracing and testing of persons who may have come into contact with those who had already tested positive.
