Only 31 passengers tested positive for Covid-19 since the Lomé airport resumed operations

(Togo First) - About 15,000 transit passengers have been registered at the airport of Lomé since it reopened two months ago. 

The figure was released by the National Agency of Civil Aviation (ANAC Togo) which is taking stock of its activities after the resumption.

"We are satisfied," said Colonel Gnama Latta, head of the agency, noting that 90% of planned activities have been completed, per the recommendations of ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), WHO (World Health Organization), and WAHO (West African Health Organization).

Restrictive procedures put in place by the airport to contain a spread of Covid-19, seem to be effective. Indeed, "Out of more than 15,000 people in transit, only 31 had the disease," Latta said.

Moreover, according to the managers of the screening center, out of the thousands of tests already carried out, there are to date more positive cases at departure, than arrival.
