PHOTOS + VIDEO: Inside The Last Flight Out Of Accra Before The Border Was Shut

At midnight on Sunday, Ghana became an island and a no go zone for international travellers.

As part of preventive measures to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus infection called COVID-19, President Akufo-Addo closed all the country’s borders – land, sea and air.

Yesterday, all the last remaining scheduled flights out of Accra took off.

Onboard one of those flights was Aron Shaviv. Aron is a Political Strategist who has advised some of the top political leaders in the U.S., Central America, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.

We can’t confirm what he was doing in the country, but he flew out on the last flight to China before the closure of the border took effect.

At the airport and even on the plane, passengers (including children) were wearing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as full bodysuit, face masks, gloves, goggles and others.

The passengers took extreme precautions to avoid catching the virus.

International travellers have never had to be this cautious.
