This was revealed by the regional minister, Dr Archibald Letsa, during a visit to the Regional Immigration Office to acquaint himself with their preparedness towards preventing the spread of Coronavirus.

Ghana, just like the rest of the world, has been hit by the dreaded Coronavirus disease, simply known as COVID-19.

After confirming its first two cases barely two weeks ago, Ghana's case count has jumped to 68 as at Wednesday, March 25, 2020, with three deaths recorded.

The outbreak has led to the closure of Ghana's borders to human traffic.

Speaking to the Immigration officers, Dr Lets warned that any of them who would compromise professionalism for personal gain would be punished by law.

In a report YEN.com.gh sighted on Ghananewsagency.org, the minister urged the officers and men to adhere to the basic protective measures of handwashing, social distancing, avoiding touching one's face, practising respiratory hygiene and staying at home if unwell as recommended by the World Health Organisation.
