Black Stars Screened For Ebola In Togo

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.
