A young Ghanaian woman in her mid 30 who decided not to be a spectator fought some staff members of Kotoka International Airport for allowing some passengers to escape covid-19 testing.
The woman who was part of a group of passengers who arrived at Kotoka on july 11, 2021 with British Airways claims she has been monitoring the staff and she noticed they were allowing some to escape the Covid testing procedure while they take some amount of money from them.
Following the declaration of the novel Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) as a global Public Health Emergency of International Concern on 30th January 2020, several States instituted measures to curb the spread of the disease.
In Ghana, similar measures were instituted in addition to Executive Instrument (EI) 61 requiring some practices to be enforced.
As part of plans to reopen the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) on the 1st September 2020, the Ghana Health Service/Ministry of Health has instituted measures to prevent and control the spread of COVID 19 in Ghana related to international travel.
The outlined measures are applicable to flight crew and passengers arriving and/or departing KIA within the period of reopening the airport to international travel until further advised.
