Drone photos: Ashaiman residents defy lockdown
Some residents of Ashaiman, a densely populated urban slum near Tema, seem unperturbed by the government’s directive to their community for people to stay home as part of measures to break the back of the coronavirus spread.
Theghanareport.com drone shots from the area suggest residents breaking the stay home rules. Although the main Ashaiman Lorry Park appears deserted, there were many people on the streets of the community that shares boundaries with Tema, a hot spot of the virus.
In spite of a police presence in the area, the residents appear determined to stay in town instead of their homes.
