Three Nigerian sex workers have been arrested and quarantined at Salaga in the Savannah Region.
The East Gonja Municipal COVID-19 emergency response team is currently in a meeting to decide whether to keep them in Salaga for them to undergo the mandatory 14-day quarantine period or send them to Tamale, where they are believed to be based.
They were picked up by the Police at a guest house on Sunday, April 5, at about 9:00 p.m. following a tip-off from some residents.
Customers of the prostitutes have however been let go.
Health officials on Monday morning visited the quarantine facility to perform COVID-19 protocols, including taking of their temperature.
A total of 214 COVID-19 cases have been recorded since the first two cases were confirmed in the country on March 12.
