Elders and Chiefs of the Kwahu Traditional Area have taken the bull by the horn in fighting the deadly Coronavirus by declaring a lockdown in the town.
They cautioned against moving in or out of the town and advised natives who are currently out to stay wherever they are until further notice.
According to the Chiefs, Kwahu has old people residing there and therefore if these natives come from places where they reside, they could cause an outbreak of the Coronavirus which will be an unbearable situation.
The statement also indicated that all social gatherings during this distressing time should be halted until further notice.
