Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament Alban Sumani Bagbin has in a recent statement called for all the members of parliament to conduct a COVID-19 test which is very compulsory to all as a means of avoiding the spread of the virus in parliament should anyone have it.
The order comes after some important and very prominent key members of society died in the previous weeks after battling with the deadly virus.
The speaker in the directive stated saying;
All members of Parliament are accordingly requested to avail themselves for this important medical screening exercise scheduled as follows – Wednesday 20th to Friday, January 22, 2021. COVID-19 is real and deadly, at the end of the day if we find out that a member or some members haven’t gone through the screening we’ll advise ourselves as to what to do
The country has currently seen a rise in the number of cases as the president calls for all to adhere to the safety protocols set for all in order to avoid the spike in the number of cases in the country.
Ghana currently has confirmed cases of 58,431 with some 55,899 persons having either recovered or been discharged.
But Ghana’s active COVID-19 cases stand at 2,174 with the country’s death toll sitting at 358.
Let’s all stay safe and wear our nose masks when going out into public.
