Liberia has re-opened its international airport to regular air traffic despite still struggling to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

The country has now become the first West African country to open its air borders amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Liberia will however remain in a state of emergency until July 22 to contain the spread of COVID-19 after cases surged above 600.

The country’s GDP is reported to have declined since 2019 and this year isnt looking good either.

Many African countries shut their air borders and stopped regular air traffic as part of measures to contain the spread of the virus.

But many of these countries have been badly hit by this measure with its economic impact very significant.

Last week Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu also announced the reopening of the country’s air borders and airports.

He said the decision was to boost the economy of the country which has been badly hit by restrictions imposed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

In Africa there are over 380,000 confirmed COVID19 cases – with more than 181,000 recoveries & 9,500 deaths.
