The president of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured Ghanaians in his address to the nation on March 27, 2020, that importation of COVID-19 has stopped.
Indeed, after the spike in coronavirus cases in Ghana that were recorded among new persons who returned to Ghana from different countries and were put in quarantine, no other imported case of COVID-19 has been reported.
It would be recalled that by the morning of March 26, 2020, the total number of cases of the deadly coronavirus increased drastically to 132 as 78 cases in total were confirmed among people in mandatory quarantine after returning to Ghana.

Since then, Ghana's cases have not been stable as the total number of cases confirmed in the country as at the evening of March 27, 2020, is now 137.
This number is fully from the regular surveillance among Ghanaians and none has been imported into Ghana.
It appears that the strict directive given by the president on March 21, 2020, for all borders both land and air to be closed has been fully enforced, hence the results.
