Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, Minister-designate for Foreign Affairs, says she was not interested in conversation at Kotoka International Airport, based on the test fee of around $150 COVID-19.

She said she was just informed of the $50 COVID-19 exam for residents of ECOWAS.

She set that she was just mindful of the $50 COVID-19 test for ECOWAS residents.

“I was not counseled on the $150 antigen test charge at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) yet I know at ECOWAS, a choice was taken for ECOWAS residents all through all the 15 part states to just have a monetary weight of $50 for the COVID-19 test,” she showed during her reviewing by Parliament’s Appointment Committee on Thursday, February 11, 2021.

All travelers coming to Ghana via air were at first needed to pay $150 briefly PCR COVID-19 test.

President Nana Akufo-Addo on Sunday, January 31, 2021, in any case, said testing for COVID-19 for all nationals of ECOWAS had been covered at $50.

The President said the expense for different nationals outside the sub-district will stay at $150.

The Minister-assign advocated the $50 charge for ECOWAS nationals, saying it is the standard practice across the globe.

“I think it is alright. Indeed, even in Europe, there are a few charges left to residents inside the zone and an alternate one for individuals outside of it.”

Some concerned partners have condemned the public authority for keeping up the $150 COVID-19 testing expense for non-ECOWAS individuals.
