The Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, posted on his Twitter page to announce the development.He said the extension is for another 14 days.

“This is to ensure that the risk of importation of Covid-19 cases will remain curtailed while we focus on the enhanced tracing and testing programme currently underway,” the tweet read in part.
