We’re ready for Coronavirus – KIA boss assures Akufo-Addo


The Kotoka International Airport (KIA) is fully ready to detect any passenger carrying Coronavirus on arrival into the country, the Managing Director of the Ghana Airport Company Limited, Mr Yaw Kwakwa, has told President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Mr Kwaka said this on Wednesday, 4 March 2020 when Mr Akufo-Addo inspected work done towards the preparation of an outbreak of the Covid-19 in the country at the KIA.

“We are well prepared to deal with the coronavirus issue through every international standard,” Mr Yaw Kwakwa said.

He further told journalists that the President is satisfied with the security checks put in place at the airport to detect the virus.

“From what he said when he was getting into his car, he is very satisfied that we have put in place measures along international guidelines to make sure that the country is well protected against the coronavirus,” Mr Kwakwa stated.

President Akufo-Addo subjected himself to the process by checking his temperature with the newly installed equipment.
