Covid-19: Ghana extends border closure by two weeks


Ghana’s borders will remain closed for at least another two weeks, President Akufo-Addo has disclosed.

The directive takes effect on Monday, April 20, 2020.

The decision, according to the President stems from the overwhelming Covid-19 cases imported into the country by travellers or from persons who have come into contact with travellers.

“I have thus, signed an Executive Instrument to extend the closure of our borders for two more weeks beginning Monday the 20th of April,” President Akufo-Addo said in his 7th address to the nation Sunday night.

He recounted a number of arrests made by security personnel at the country’s borders and lauded the men in uniform for their good work.

The President also lifted the ban on restriction of movements in two major cities that have been worse hit by the Coronavirus.

Ghana’s current case count stands at 1,042 with nine deaths.
