The government on September 1 re-opened the Kotoka International Airport to international passenger traffic, after five months of closure.

 This also meant that all travellers coming into Ghana by air are required to have a PCR test 72 hours prior to their boarding. Back home, passengers are also expected to pay $150 (¢868) for another Covid-19 test after landing.

Today on The Lockdown, the host, Emefa Apawu and her guests are discussing the issues surrounding the reopening of the airports.

Joining the host is the Deputy Health Minister, Dr Oko Boye, and the Managing Director of the Ghana Airports Company Limited, Yaw Kawkaw.
