The Right Honourable Alban Bagbin, Speaker of Parliament confirms some MP’s in the parliament house has tested positive for the new wave of covid-19.
For negligence purpose, he didn’t disclose their names. Hon. Bagbin urged the parliament house to adhere strictly to the protocols of covid-19.
However, there was a three-day health screening exercise for the members of the parliament.
The exercise was then extended after reports showed that, just a third of the parliament house took part in the exercise.
“We arranged with the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research to use three days and the three days are over, but I am reliably informed that, a number of our members have not yet taken the opportunity to either do the screening or to even undergo the covid-19 test.”
He added,”Honourable members, I humbly urge that you all take this opportunity seriously and go test by the end of today”.
