Actress Lydia Forson says President Akufo-Addo's lockdown directive has loopholes and is very confusing.

She said she appreciates the efforts of the government to contain the spread of the deadly Coronavirus but the directive is not really clear.

She took to Twitter and wrote: "While I appreciate the efforts the government is putting in to control this pandemic; I believe this #lockdown was not fully thought through. So many grey areas, loopholes, misinformation, and confusion. Like some people have already run away to other regions,"

President Akufo-Addo, on March 28 announced the stay at home measure under the Imposition of Restrictions Act, 2020 (Act 1012) and said it would be reviewed when deemed necessary.

Ghana confirmed its first two cases of the respiratory disease on Thursday, March 12 and has so far recorded 152 positive, five deaths and two recoveries.

The disease has been recorded in the Greater Accra, Ashanti, Northern and Upper West regions.
