According to him, if people do not adhere to social distancing, use hand sanitizers and wear the face mask then government will have no option than to introduce  a total lockdown and curfew.

He expressed the view that if government observes an increase in the cases of infected persons the aforementioned measures will be implemented as soon as possible.

“If we continue adhering to the other measures, we don’t expect a spike of infections. The 14 other regions where there was no lockdown, we didn’t see any spike, but if people keep being stubborn, and there is a spike, a lockdown and a curfew will be imposed,” he said.

He made this statements in an interview with Peace FM’s Kwame Sefa Kayi on he ‘Kokrokoo” morning show.
