Ghana’s Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has disclosed that the government will consider banning flights from the UK if it deems it necessary. He said the Akufo-Addo administration is assessing the situation in the United Kingdom before a decision will be taken.
There have been calls by a section of Ghanaians for the government to stop flights from Britain due to the discovery of a new strain of COVID-19 there.
“All cards remain on the table. Ghana has two layers of prevention for international travel but we (Government) continue to observe and if need be and some changes need to take place, it will be done accordingly. That is why, despite the fact that we see commentary on platforms that close flights from the UK, close flights from the US, we are guided by the layers of prevention we have rolled out, but we continue to monitor the situation”, he said
