COVID-19: Residents defy President Order, hold funeral in Sunyani

Some residents in Sunyani the Bono Regional Capital have rebelled against orders by the President imposing ban on any social gathering for a funeral.
Seeming charged atmosphere amidst dancing were about 40 mourners with a number of gathered onlookers.  

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo addressing the nation after the country recorded its first two cases of the novel coronavirus, imposed ban on all social gatherings effective March 16th as part of measures to prevent spread of the virus.

A pastor after flouting the rules by holding a prayer meeting with his church members was arrested yesterday at North Suntreso in the heart of Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital.
Contrary to series of health advice, the mourners at the funeral grounds were seen hugging and dancing. Speaking to some of them, they told arkfmonline though the order has been given, they do not believe the case of COVID-19 has not been recorded in Ghana yet but other foreign countries.
