The reasons for the spikes have caused some restrictions but people still keep flouting the measures. The new variants are more deadly than the first type.

This is the time that we expected people to be more careful, but this hasn’t happened. The new strain is taking so many lives. The president will be meeting with his task force so that based on that they release the new measures. The news am getting look gloom. People need to take the advice seriously” Oppong Nkrumah said.
