Ghana Closes Borders for Arrivals From Coronavirus-Hit Countries

0 509

Ghana is closing its borders to travelers from countries with more than 200 cases of the coronavirus as the West African nation seeks to prevent contagion of the disease.

The government is asking airlines to stop affected travelers from boarding flights, while citizens and resident-permit holders will be required to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival, Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah told reporters Sunday in the capital, Accra.

“All travel to Ghana is strongly discouraged,” he said. Confirmed cases have increased to six after four more people, all of whom who traveled abroad, tested positive.
