Government of Ghana has declared it will cancel flights from the United Kingdom (UK) to Ghana if necessary following the outbreak of a new covid-19 strain.
The Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said Ghana is monitoring the situation before any rigid measures would be taken.
“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.”
The World Health Organization (WHO) on the other hand says, the new strain of the pandemic spreading in the U.K. is more infectious.
The new covid-19 strain has caused many European countries to close their borders to travellers from the U.K.
