Mandatory Covid testing at airport hurting trade, tourism; review it

Published

on


The Member of Parliament for the Mpraeso constituency in the Eastern Region, Davis Opoku Ansah, is asking the Ministry of Health to review the COVID-19 testing regime in the country.

Mr. Opoku Ansah is of the view that the testing regime is hurting trade and tourism in the country.

Inasmuch as he appreciates the importance of the testing, he insisted that it’s time for a review.

“It’s time for the Ministry of Health to review the COVID testing regime in our country.”

“While it is essential to have our eyes on the virus, we must appreciate that the testing regime hurts trade and tourism.”

He added that many Ghanaians have been vaccinated against the disease as such, the policy should be reviewed.

He is thus suggesting that anyone who arrives at the airport with proof of vaccination, shouldn’t be subjected to mandatory testing at the airport.

“Today, many Ghanaians have had access to the vaccine, and many more persons entering our country have also been immunised. We can say that, as of now, we can fight the virus.”

“Therefore, anyone who shows proof of complete vaccination should be spared the testing at the Airport.”

Meanwhile, he is asking the government to put in place measures at the country’s land borders to enable its safe opening.

“Those who also have a less than 48-hour PCR test and can use the African Union and Africa CDC #TrustedTravel platform, a COVID Pass tool that simplifies verification of public health documentation for travellers during exit and entry across borders, should also be allowed access to Ghana without going through the testing in our ports.”

“Again, Government must put measures in place to allow for passage along with the land ports in Ghana. Our traders, who go to Togo and Nigeria to also engage in trading, must be allowed access. We can also put in place the testing regime along these borders.”
