Mandatory quarantine

The period for mandatory quarantine for travellers who arrived between 21st and 22nd March 2020 as per the President’s directive has also ended.

This was part of enhanced measures to track the real number of persons who had contracted the infection in a bid to prevent a further spread.

In all, a total of 1,030 travellers were quarantined during the period.

But the GHS says out of these, 79 (7.7%) were positive during the initial testing while 951 were negative.

26 among those that were initially negative were found to have converted to be positive at the exit screening, bringing the number to a total of 105 which constitutes 10.2% among the travellers that were quarantined.
