Directive for people to stay indoors appears to have sunk in well with residents of the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi as people desert even the busiest streets. The streets were indeed far from busy, evidently empty on Monday.
The streets were much quiet than normal after the government announced a 14-day lockdown in Greater Kumasi and parts of Greater Accra to contain the spread of COVID 19 which takes effect from March 30, 2020.
The normally busy traffic route of the Tech and Anloga Junction was almost empty with few vehicles plying it.
The human traffic and long queues at Tech Junction lorry terminal were absent.
Only a handful of trotros and taxis were stationed waiting for passengers.
Also, the traffic-prone Atonsu and Labour Roundabout roads were all traffic-free.
Most shops have been closed in compliance with the lockdown directives.
Whilst most people are complying with the stay at home directives, few ones are still on the streets.
