Covid-19: Airport authorities slightly loosen testing requirements for travelers

(Togo First) - New directives have been introduced at the airport of Lomé (AIGE) to loosen the noose, a little, regarding Covid-19 screening. 

Indeed, starting this week, departing and arriving travelers must present a negative report (PCR covid-19 test) of no more than seven days (against five days previously) before traveling. Any traveler who does not comply with this rule will be denied access to flights, the AIGE informed. 

The airport authorities added that travelers visiting Togo for no more than seven days will not need to redo a covid-19 test if the one they did on arrival is negative. 

Recently, Togo’s civil aviation authority said it controlled the disease through various initiatives such as setting a modern lab for screening at the airport. As a result, only 31 people out of 15,000 (around 0.2%) who transited through the airport since it resumed two months ago tested positive for covid-19.
