Africa launches platform to inform travelers about restrictions imposed by covid-19
African governments will launch a joint digital platform to inform travelers about the restrictions imposed by covid-19 across the continent. The initiative is from the African Center for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC).
After almost six months of banning international travel to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus, the main airports on the continent have now resumed international flights, but with specific restrictions.
“#Trusted Travel, My COVID Pass, will provide travelers in Africa with information about the requirements they will face when traveling to different countries on the continent,” said John Nkengasong, director of the African Center for Disease Control and Prevention.
The digital platform will also offer connections to laboratories where travelers will be able to obtain the results of tests on covid-19, which are needed to enter many African countries, explained Nkengasong at a virtual press conference from Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
