It is as a result of this that a partial lockdown was announced in certain parts of the country. This lockdown has been lifted in these areas.

However, there is also a closure of the country’s borders - air, sea, and land. The president first announced the closure of Ghana’s borders on March 22, 2020.

It has since been extended to the end of May 2020, meaning the Evaluation Minister will be out of the country for a while.

Meanwhile, there have been growing calls by some Ghanaian travellers affected by the travel ban for the government to facilitate their return home.
