‘Ghana should go under curfew to defeat COVID-19’, says GFA president


The West African country’s football governing body’s chief wants all activities within the day to come to a halt despite concerns by a section of Ghanaians that football must return soon

Ghana Football Association president Kurt Okraku has revealed that he would admonish a partial curfew across the country as a means to battle Coronavirus disease pandemic.

As at 19h00 GMT on Wednesday, an official number of 5,408 cases of Coronavirus disease had been recorded including 24 deaths. The uprise came as a surprise to many since all the country’s boarders have been closed while laws have been passed for a mandatory wearing of face masks.

And Okraku, whose association has submitted a request to government for a stimulus package to help various clubs to pay their players and workers, believes a curfew from sunrise until sunset will be the best of options under the current situation to stop the spread of the virus.

“My Opinion: COVID 19, per the way the numbers keep going up, I will suggest a 6pm to 6am curfew every day for some weeks to enable us control the spread of this virus,” Okraku posted on Facebook.

“It’s becoming really scary!!!! Do you agree ? 🇬🇭,” he added.

Ghana FA’s Ghanaman Centre of Excellence in Prampram has been adopted as on of the isolation centres to help in the battle against the disease.
