President Akufo Addo has donated his three(3) months salary to a Coronavirus Fund established to deal with the deadly disease.

The Fund will be managed by an independent board of trustees chaired by the immediate past Chief Justice, Sophia Akufo Addo to receive contributions and donations from the public to assist in the welfare of the needy and the vulnerable.

“I have directed the Controller-General to pay my next three months salary, ie, April May and June into this fund. Let me also thank from the bottom of my heart the churches, financial institutions and individuals who have already made donations to help in this fight. God richly bless you,” President Akufo Addo said in an address to brief the nation on the latest measures being taken to contain the spread of the coronavirus disease.

He added that Ghanaians as a people can defeat the coronavirus if we all commit ourselves to respecting all the measures outlined, adding that he’s confident the measures will be complied with.

Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has announced a lockdown in Accra and Kumasi Metropolis effective dawn of Monday, 30th March 2020 following a spike in cases of the covid-19 pandemic.

The directive will affect Accra, Kumasi, Tema, Kasoa among others.

However, essential workers have been exempted from the temporary measures announced by the President as the lockdown takes effect Monday dawn.

Ghana’s confirmed cases has scaled up to 137 with four deaths.
