Actress Lydia Forson has disclosed that she and her family were already in lockdown before the president pronounced the official partial lockdown of Greater Accra, Kumasi and Kasoa.
The partial lockdown took effect 1 am March 30 and was extended for another week and lasted a total of 3 weeks as part of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Although people felt it was too long to have to stay at home, not go to work unless one offers essential service, it seemed to have affected the actress differently.
She explained her movie was just in the cinemas before the ban on the public gathering but being innovative is fetching good results.
According to her, the whole COVID-19 period the world is facing now is just a learning period for her. “I feel like it’s a reset of some sort,” she noted.
Speaking to Bernard Avle on the Point Of View on Citi TV, however, she agrees “it’s difficult but I can’t say I’ve been hit as hard because I just dug in. I love the challenge. Yes it’s difficult.”
“I locked my family down before they announced the lockdown because I had family in Liberia during the Ebola. They had to come and stay with me so I’ve experienced these two other people so we were already set before they did the lockdown and that was the great thing.”
“So again you’re forced to go into a creative mood and dig things from your heart and you’d be amazed at the things that you’ll find…so it’s important to see what we can do. It doesn’t make it easy but I think I’ve always prepared myself for the worst and hope for the best,” she added.
