Cinemas Remain Closed Due to High-Risk Social Activities – Oppong-Nkrumah

Information Minister of Ghana, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah says that the social events taking place in cinemas, enclosed night clubs and beaches have led to the government’s reluctance to relax COVID-19 restrictions in these areas.

Speaking at the probe with Emefa Apawu, he clarified the risk levels remain high and may lead to an outbreak or a second wave of the virus.

“Take the night club, for example, you have alcohol, loud music, and people are straining to shout to get somebody to hear what they are saying. Therefore, the risk of spittle or droplets unto the third party remains pretty high,” said Oppong-Nkrumah.

Countries, like England, that were easy to open bars, cinemas, restaurants, beaches among others are facing outbreaks he added.
