Ghana has closed all of its borders, land, sea and air to human traffic as it battles the spread of the coronavirus.

The country’s president, Nana Akufo Addo said in a national TV address that the closure of the borders will be in place for two weeks effective Sunday.

All travelers who arrived before Sunday at Ghana’s airport would also be quarantined and tested for the virus.

The country’s health ministry would also be expanding its contract tracing method and testing all those who come in contact with confirmed cases.
