Ghana’s government has announced the re-opening of the country’s land borders after two years of its closure. Ghana’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo in March of 2020 closed the borders as part of measures to curb the spread of the then novel coronavirus in the country. Between the period and now, there have been three waves of the pandemic in Ghana. However, the rate of infections has substantially slowed with active case reduced with air borders already reopened.
Delivering his 28th national address on measures taken by his government to mitigate the Covid-19 pandemic on Sunday, Nana Akufo-Addo also announced fully vaccinated passengers would no longer be required to take a mandatory COVID test at the country’s airport.
