A total number of 1,030 who arrived in Ghana have been quarantined, the National Security revealed on Tuesday.

An official of the national security O.B Dickson at a press conference said a psychologist has also been employed to counsel all those in quarantine at the various isolation centers.

The Minister of Health Kwaku Agyeman Manu speaking at the same event stated that his outfit is in the process of handing them over to the Case Management Teams that have been set up who have started taking them to isolated centres for case management.

“Definitely, not all of them will be critically ill and they are not, some of them may not be ill at all. But decision on them will be on individual case management issues. If you are not even found to be ill you still have to stay in quarantine for the mandatory 14 days. Earlier on we were getting indications that if you test negative we may release you after four days. But after technical advice we cannot do that so we have to keep you for the entire 14 days.” The Minister noted.

Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo announced in an address to the nation that all borders – air, land and sea – will be closed to human traffic from Sunday midnight in a bid to contain the Covid-19 disease.

“This closure will not apply to goods, supplies and cargo,” he said in the address.

He said anybody who arrives in the country within the next two weeks will undergo “mandatory quarantine” and tested for the coronavirus.”
