The government has closed the country’s borders.
The land, sea and air borders have been shut as part of preventive measures against the spread of the novel coronavirus infection called COVID-19.
This also includes a mandatory 14-day quarantine for people returning to Ghana from an overseas trip.
One Ghanaian who returned from a trip to South Africa yesterday, exclusively tells Kuulpeeps.com about how he was put in mandatory quarantine.
It is safe to note that South Africa is one of the worst-hit African countries.
As at the time of filing this report, South Africa had recorded 274 cases and no deaths.
This immediately places a red flag on anyone returning to Ghana from South Africa.
According to the Ghanaian man, who prefers to remain anonymous, authorities did not allow them to leave the airport on their own when they arrived.
He said all the passengers were taken to a secluded area at the airport and they were later transported in Ghana Police Service buses to where they would be quarantined.
He said the passengers were taken to either Labadi Beach Hotel or the M Plaza Hotel.
When they arrived, they were assigned rooms and dinner was served many hours later.
The food was placed on the floor for them to pick it up, there was no contact between them and the person serving the food.
As at now, the only form of medical care they have received is the checking of their temperature.
