Just yesterday Friday 22nd May 2020, we published here that 245 people living illegally in Kuwait have faced deportation.
Despite the closure of our borders to prevent the importation of Coronavirus, “the government of Ghana has…granted a special permit for the admission of the said deportees to Ghana,” Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said at a press conference Friday.
Addressing the media at the press centre of the Ministry, Mr. Oppong Nkrumah said all the deportees will be mandatorily quarantined and tested for the coronavirus upon arrival into the country.
Deportees who test positive would be given the necessary supportive treatment while those who test negative will remain in quarantine for a second test at the end of a 14-day quarantine period, said Oppong Nkrumah.
Well, as it stands, the deportees have safely arrived in Ghana.
The deportees in a video were seen in their nose masks with little or no luggage as they marched in a single file at the Kotoka Airport arrival hall.
