After Ghana confirmed four additional cases of COVID-19, the government placed a travel ban on foreign nationals.
The four news cases bring Ghana’s coronavirus case count to 6 confirmed cases.
In a statement signed by the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah announcing the travel advisory from the government, he said the government is strongly discouraging people from travelling to Ghana.
He said all travellers, except Ghanaian citizens and foreigners with residency permits, who have visited COVID-19 infected countries with more than 200 cases will not be allowed to enter the country.
Those who are also allowed entry will be asked to undertake a 14-day self-quarantine before joining the general public.
This partial travel ban takes effect on March 17, 2020 at 1 pm local time.
