Information gathered by ABC News indicates that Ghana on Monday, March 23 denied the UK the chance to evacuate its nationals over concerns of Coronavirus.

ABC News gathers that despite an earlier agreement to a request for UK nationals in the country to be sent back, a British Airways bound flight to Ghana was returned upon arrival.

Citi News reports that though the British High Commission had requested to evacuate some 360 UK nationals from Ghana to the UK, the decision was rescinded even before the flight could land in Ghana.

Though reasons for the action have not been communicated it is clear Ghana is taking no chances in the fight against Coronavirus.

Ghana’s fight against COVID-19 has been dealt a big blow after the country recorded the biggest single-day increase of 40 cases.

This has effectively lifted the country’s cases to 93 including 4 deaths.

Even though one person has made full recovery, some have questioned whether the precautionary measures employed by government are effective or not.

The latest update by online portal, ‘worldometer’ which is acclaimed for its prompt reporting of COVID-19 cases worldwide, hasn’t been authenticated by the Ghana Health Service.
