A virologist with the Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research in Tropical Medicine (KCCR), Dr Michael Owusu has disagreed with the Ghana Medical Association's calls for a lockdown of the entire nation.
The GMA in a statement released yesterday showed concerns about the spread of Covid-19 and asked the government to immediately consider a lockdown of the entire nation.
This generated a lot of debate as there seems to be a divided opinion on the issue.
But Dr Owusu says the approach of a lockdown is wrong.
Ghana has so far recorded 68 cases of Covid-19 with 3 deaths so far. This has forced the Ghana Medical Association to call on the government to lock down the country as a matter of urgency.
They believe that locking down the country is the best way to stop the spread of the virus.
