Togolese borders to soon reopen, Covid-19 response team says

(Togo First) - Togo prepares to reopen its borders, restart flights, and reopen its schools. The news was disclosed by the national coordinating team in charge of the Covid-19 response (CNGR), in its latest weekly press briefing. 

“We are progressively headed towards the reopening of borders, and the restart of flights as well,” said Col. Djibril Mohaman who heads the CNGR.

In this framework, competent authorities are actively preparing to ensure that travelers arrive in the best conditions while taking some precautions. One of the steps taken by these authorities in this regard involves setting up a mobile laboratory where travelers will be tested at the Gnassingbé Eyadema International Airport. 

Also, it must be emphasized that reopening borders will be a concerted decision taken with other Member States of the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU). 

So far, Togo has confirmed 522 covid-19 cases, including 244 active and 265 who have recovered.
