There is a message circulating on social media that the World Health Organisation (WHO), Ghana, is warning Ghanaians to stay indoors on a particular day because the number of positive cases of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) is going to peak in the country.
The message further cautions that the incubation period of the Covid-19 in Ghana has been met and after the country reaches the maximum record of cases, there will be a two-week stability period followed by a fall in the numbers.
Fact-checkghana.com has fact-checked the claims of the viral message and concludes that it’s completely false.
“There is a message going around on social media purported to have been issued by WHO, Ghana to the effect that people should remain indoors at a certain time because there is evidence of the start of a peak of confirmed cases. We wish to state categorically that WHO, Ghana has not issued any such communication,” the statement said.
Currently, the government of Ghana is enforcing a lockdown and all citizens are advised to comply with the directives and wait until further directions are given.
