The government of Ghana will this morning update the nation on what it is doing to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

The press conference is to be addressed by Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Information Minister and officials of the Ministry of Health.

On Monday, a second person died in Ghana from Covid-19.

The Ghana Health Service is yet to give details about the deceased but said three new cases have been recorded, bringing Ghana’s total number to 27.

There’s intense pressure on the government to not only close the country’s borders as announced but also introduce a lockdown.
