The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has ordered the closure of Ghana’s borders from Sunday, March 22, 2020.
This is to help reduce further escalation of the Coronavirus infection rate in the country.
President Akufo-Addo announced during his broadcast to the nation on Saturday, March 21, 2020.
The address on Saturday is his third address to the nation since Ghana recorded its first case of the novel Coronavirus.
He said all the country’s borders- land, air and sea- will be closed at midnight on Sunday.
“Anyone who comes will be quarantined for 14days,” he added.
The closure will, however, not apply to goods.
