AFCON 2015 Qualifier: Black Stars screened for Ebola at Togo Border

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The Black Stars players were made to undergo a routine medical

screening for Ebola upon their arrival in Togo for their 2015 Africa

Cup of Nations qualifier on Tuesday afternoon.

All the Ghana players and officials were screened at the airport in

Lome before being dispatched to their hotel.

Winger Christian Atsu posted a picture on his Instagram page of the

Ebola screening process in Lome.

The screening process forms part of measures being put in place by

several African governments to prevent Ebola into their countries.

As expected, no player was recorded to have caught the virus which is

fast spreading in the sub-region.

Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone have been worse hit by this epidemic,

recording over a thousand fatalities.

The Black Stars are in Lome to take on Togo in their second 2015

Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Ghana had been held to a disappointing 1-1 draw by Uganda in their

opening qualifier played last Saturday in Kumasi.
