A total of 1030 travellers are currently on mandatory quarantine in Ghana as part of measures to help curb the spread of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Ghana.

The 1030 travellers who arrived in Ghana in the last few days after air, land and sea borders closed are currently on mandatory quarantine for 14 days.

Out of the number,  611 samples have been taken and 185 have been processed and 25 tested positive for COVID-19.

The rest are yet to be tested.

This is what is adding to the previous 27 cases as of Monday night to give Ghana a total of 52 cases with 2 deaths.

It means Ghana is now having 50 existing cases which are being managed in isolation.
