Lomé’s airport authorities evaluate measures taken to contain Covid-19 spread

(Togo First) - Anti-covid-19 safety measures implemented at the airport of Lomé are being evaluated, congruent with the infrastructure’s activity resumption plan. An audit was indeed launched in this regard on Sept. 24 to make sure the action plan adopted meets existing requirements. 

Among steps taken by the airport is the creation of an App to track passengers and test them upon arrival and departure. Regarding the latter, a molecular biology lab financed by the World Bank was set up. 

The modern facility was officially delivered to the airport’s authority on Sept. 24 as well. According to the officials in charge of the lab, since its operationalization, thousands of passengers have been tested. The tests show that more passengers leaving the country tested positive than those coming in - a conclusion that mitigates the risk of importing new cases.
