Ghana on Monday, March 16, 2020 closed all schools, universities and suspended public events to stop the spread of coronavirus as a string of African nations imposed tighter restrictions to stem the spread of the global pandemic.

Public gatherings, including conferences, religious services, sports matches and political rallies have also been suspended.
