41 Ghanaians who were in Washington DC, USA, have arrived in safely in Ghana.
41 Ghanaians who are mostly students who went on an exchange program sponsored by the State Department of the United States of America have arrived safely back home.
They arrived aboard a South African Airways flight at 9.20 am today, Saturday, at the Kotoko International Airport, Citinewsroom.com reported.
This comes a day after the government announced that it has arranged chartered flights to bring back Ghanaians home based on a schedule drawn up by the Foreign Affairs Ministry even though most countries have closed borders due to COVID-19.
The evacuees are lodging at a hotel in Accra, and they are to observe the two-weeks mandatory quarantine period.
One of the students who spoke to Citi News said, “The exchange program was supposed to be for ten months. So we were supposed to come back on June 8. But we left our various states on June 3 and then we went to the USA to stay overnight and then we left.”
