Prostitution banned in Northern region over COVID-19


Prostitution has been banned in Ghana’s Northern region after 10 COVID-19 cases were confirmed in the region.

The regional minister Salifu Sa-eed in a statement said the ban is part of drastic measures being rolled out in the region to pull the brakes on the pandemic.

The 10 cases were Guinean residents who travelled through Burkina Faso and Togo to Ghana and were picked following intelligence report, according to the Ghana Immigration Service.

A Guinean national who tested positive for the deadly coronavirus is still on the run having fled the quarantine facility.

Following the development, the Northern regional minister said it has become imperative to ban prostitution.

“Those involved in the practice and its related activities within the region are therefore advised to seize any engagement in those acts, forthwith. Those who defy this directive will be dealt with strictly in accordance with the Laws of the Republic,” the Minister who is also the Chairman of the Regional Security Council said in the statement.
