The president of the Republic of Ghana, President Akuffo Addo has in his state of the nation address which took place yesterday spoken about the reopening of the Kotoka International Airport for business.
Kotoka international airport was closed after the number of cases of the coronavirus in the country increased since the arrival of the first two people who had the virus into the country.
The closing of the border served as a means of curbing the spread of the virus by people entering the country from other parts of the world.

According to the president, Ghana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL), Ghana Health Service and the Ministry of Health have all sat down together and checked up on the opening of the airport and how best they can ensure that no new case is recorded from people entering the country.
