He also noted that as at the last time the cabinet met a few hours ago, no decision has yet been made to open the Ghanaian borders.
“We are doing assisted travel for Ghanaians and person with resident permits who want to come back into the jurisdiction, but that is also determined by our ability to quarantine and test these persons and hold them for fourteen (14) day period before we allow them into the general population. It is risk mitigation,” he stated.
