Former president Jerry John Rawlings has on Friday announced the immediate closure of his office due to the rapid spread of the coronavirus in Ghana.
“The decision which is aimed at protecting staff and potential visitors will be reviewed after two weeks,” a statement from his office read.
The statement, however, did not mention if a case has been detected in the office or otherwise.
It added: “The former President once again urges all Ghanaians to be mindful of their personal discipline and care as we work to combat the disease. He calls on all to wear their masks, maintain appropriate social distancing, cough etiquette and general hygiene protocols.
“Members of the general public who wish to urgently contact the office can do so through email – firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.”
