MPs’ COVID-19 test results won’t be public – Dr Pambo

Director of Medical Services in Parliament, Dr Prince Pambo has said results of Members of Parliament who partook in the mandatory coronavirus test will not be made public.

He said the results of individuals who test positive will be presented to them individually without the involvement of parliament.

On 19th May, 2020 the Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Oquaye, directed all Members of Parliament, including parliamentary staff, to go through a mandatory Coronavirus test.

This step he said, forms part of measures instituted by the Parliamentary Service Board to prevent an outbreak of the pandemic in the legislature.

He assured that all necessary steps will be taken to ensure the safety of MPs.

As a result of that directive, the samples of some 690 persons in Parliament were taken last week.

Speaking to Citi News in an interview after the exercise, Dr Prince Panbo said ‘The exercise was meant, not only for members of Parliament but the staff of Parliament as well and other support staff who have a duty in the parliamentary precinct and the results will be made known to them individually,”

Meanwhile, Ghana’s Health Service has announced some new 125 confirmed cases of the Coronavirus in the country, barely hours after some 66 recorded on Sunday, May 24, 2020.

This brings to total, 6,808 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Ghana, following Sunday’s 6,683.

The recoveries also have increased by 72, making it 2,070, from its previous 1,998.
