The Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has hinted the constituency could possibly go on lockdown should residents fail to adhere to the social distancing rule.
The MP who is the current Minister of Communications was worried the cases in the constituency would escalate if efforts are not put in place to contain the virus.
The case count in the constituency she disclosed has risen to 79, a situation she said was worrying.
According to her, they only had two cases when the outbreak started and from what has occurred so far, it would be prudent to enforce the protocols in place.
She called on the security personnel to deal ruthlessly with persons who are violating the guidelines in place.
The MP stressed the authorities in the area would have no option than to consider lockdown in the areas that are mostly affected.
The constituency she said has been identified as one of the hot spots in the constituency.
