It is, however, unclear the exact time the president’s address will be broadcast.
The last time President Akufo-Addo addressed the nation was on Sunday, May 31 at 10:00pm, when he announced a “phased approach” to easing of the restrictions imposed on the country on Sunday, March 15.
He increased the number of gatherers from 25 to 100, allowing “abridged formats” of religious services.
Then, Ghana’s total Covid-19 cases stood at 8,070 with 2,947 recoveries. The deaths were 36, leaving the country with 5,087 of active cases.
Since then, 15 persons have lost their lives, 3,352 new cases have been recorded and 1,209 persons recovered.
The address by the president, then, was to announce Stage One of the process of easing the restrictions.
Sunday night’s address is expected to announce Stage Two of the process.
