The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has assured that the government is working to enhance the capabilities of testing all travelers who arrive in the country on the reopening of the borders.

However, he noted that the country is in no hurry to reopen the closed borders while hinting a possibility in September, next month.

The President, who was addressing the nation during his 15th COVID-19 update, also disclosed that the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service (GES) continue to engage stakeholders over the possible reopening of schools.

He indicated that in due time any decision taken would be made public.
