Covid-19 Testing Fee for Travellers to Liberia

The country's ministry of health says travellers arriving and departing the Roberts International Airport will soon pay U.S.$75 for Covid-19 testing fees. This comes after an audit, conducted by the Internal Audit Agency (IAA) under the supervision of its former director-general, Emmanuel B. Nyeswa before his sudden death, revealed that the expenditure of funds showed inconsistencies. Meanwhile. Vice President Jewel Howard-Taylor has returned to the country after her successful recovery from Covid-19. She was flown to Accra, Ghana on an emergency flight on August 11, 2020, when she suffered respiratory complications as a result of Covid-19. Liberia has recorded 1,476 confirmed cases, 1,279 recoveries and 82 deaths as of November 2, 2020.

In Liberia, UNFPA is working together with the World Health Organization to co-lead the COVID-19 surveillance effort and the coordination of contact tracing.
