Published on: 30 September 2020

Special Adviser on health at the presidency, Dr. Nsiah Asare has revealed that player of the national teams will undergo another COVID-19 test after their respective international assignments. 

The Black Maidens,Black Princesses, the Black Starlets and the Black Satellites have all been in camp since the easing of restrictions on contact sports by government.

All players went through the mandatory test before camp resumed ahead of preparations towards their respective qualifiers later this year.

According to Dr. Asare, despite undergoing the necessary checks, the teams will again be tested when they return from their international engagements.

"It's a risk. We will test the players again when they are returning to Ghana after their international assignments. It's a contact game so it's possible to contract the virus and bring it here," he told Hello FM.

"Our plan is to test them again because we don't know whether they will follow the Fifa and Caf instructions fully in the countries they will play their various matches," he added.
