Ghanaian highlife artiste Dada Hafco has said that it is likely for people to contract COVID-19 at the Kotoka International Airport.
Dada Hafco is part of the people who are under mandatory quarantine upon arrival at the airport.
In an interview with DJ Advicer on Happy FM, Dada Hafco explained that conditions at the airport can predispose one to get the virus.
“When we got to the KIA and saw what was happening, I said to myself even if we didn’t have the coronavirus, people might be infected by the time we leave here,” he said.
He said the entire process passengers from the United Kingdom were taken through on Sunday was a hectic and chaotic one.
“After the screening by the immigration service, we were all asked to move to the arrival hall and sat there for about 2 hours because the busing arrangement was being made. Though the seats were arranged with spaces in between, the number of people at the arrival hall was a huge one. With people moving back and forth with their luggage looking for their seats, it was not safe,” he added.
He said when their buses arrived at the airport to convey them to their hotels, people rushed to get on board.
According to him, the human contacts made during that period could have led to a lot more people contracting the virus.
