Effective today, February 8, 2021, the reduction in price of COVID-19 testing for ECOWAS nationals at the Kotoka International Airport(KIA) will be implemented. The charges which initially stood at $150 have been scrapped to $50.

According to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the decision was made at the 58th Summit of the Authority of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government.

“At the 58th Summit of the Authority of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government, held virtually, it was agreed that the cost of the COVID-19 test for inbound ECOWAS nationals should be pegged at fifty United States dollars ($50) at the Kotoka International Airport. The cost of the COVID test for non-ECOWAS nationals at the Kotoka International Airport still remains one hundred and fifty ($150) dollars,” Akufo-Addo said.

“The Authority approves the harmonised ECOWAS Protocol for cross-border movement of persons and goods during the pandemic and caps the cost of COVID-19 PCR test for travel within the region by ECOWAS nationals at a maximum of US$50,” the official ECOWAS communiqué stated.

The $150 fee however remains the same for all other nationals.

Former Ghana’s deputy minister of health Dr Okoe Boye has sounded a strong caution to drunkards not to drink alcohol after taking the COVID-19 vaccine.

The medical Doctor advised the general public that one can only take in an alcohol after 48-72 hours from the time you had been vaccinated.

Speaking on Peace’s FM morning show, Dr Okoe indicated the vaccines have been developed and passed through clinical examination which is aimed to build a strong immune system against diseases.

Ghana got her first batch (600,000) of the vaccines last month under the COVAX vaccine program. The west African country is expected to take delivery of 42 million of the vaccine to fight against the virus.
