Hi Folks, President @NAkufoAddo has by a new executive instrument, EI 66, extended the closure of Ghana’s borders by another two weeks effective midnight tomorrow April 5.— Kojo Oppong Nkrumah (@konkrumah) April 4, 2020
We continue to thank essential service providers who are at the frontlines of this covid-19 response program. We also thank the people of Ghana for their cooperation thus far. #ThisTooShallPass— Kojo Oppong Nkrumah (@konkrumah) April 4, 2020
It will be recalled that on March 21, 2020, President Akufo-Addo announced total closure of Ghana’s borders as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
“This closure will not apply to goods, supplies and cargo,” he said in the address then.
Ghana has recorded 205 COVID-19 cases with five deaths.
