All the 245 Ghanaians evacuated from Kuwait have tested negative for the coronavirus, Director for Media and Communication for operation Covid Safety, Osei Bonsu Dickson has said.
This should calm the nerves of some Ghanaians who worried that by allowing them into the country, Ghana could record more cases of the disease.
But Mr Dickson who is also the Chief legal advisor at the National Security Council Secretariat told JoyNews’ Latif Iddris at the Kotoka International Airport that all 263 of them were tested and they are negative.
“They needed to be taken through serological test, and that took place in Kuwait and all of them tested negative.
“The danger of bringing them in is a much reduced one because of the prior information that we have the tests that were taken today,” he added.
