President Akufo-Addo ordered a closure of the country’s borders on March 21, 2020, when the country had only recorded 21 coronavirus cases.

In his last address to the nation, the president announced that the closure of all the entry points (land, air and sea)of the country has been extended to May 31, 2020.
