According to photos that have surfaced on social media, hundreds of people are chilling at Titanic Beach, Sakumono despite the fact that President Nana Addo has placed a ban on beaches.
Delivering his 23rd COVID-19 national address on Sunday, January 31, 2021, the President said the ban on beaches has become necessary in order to curb the spread of the virus.
He added that night clubs and cinemas remain shut, while the country’s borders, both land, and sea, also remain closed.
Contrary to the president’s order, it appears people value chilling at the beach to protecting themselves against COVID-19.
Check out some photos from Titanic Beach this afternoon:
