More than 1,400 American citizens and permanent residents of the US have been evacuated from Ghana by the US Embassy.
This comes in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak in Ghana.
The Embassy made this known in a statement published on its website to highlight America’s partnership in Ghana and other parts of the world in the fight against the virus.
“The United States reaffirms this commitment to our partnership with Ghana. As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on April 10, we are also thankful to the government of Ghana for its strong support in helping the U.S. Embassy in Accra repatriate over 1,400 American citizens and permanent residents of the United States who requested assistance to return to the United States at this time,” Stephanie S. Sullivan the U.S. Ambassador said in the statement.
The Embassy has organized a number of repatriation flights with the last one being on Wednesday, April 15, 2020, which sent 300 Americans back home.
The first flight carried 305 Americans on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, after the Embassy got the Ghana Government’s support to arrange for repatriation flights.
