Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has revealed that some Members of Parliament have tested positive for the Coronavirus.
Although not mentioning their names, Alban Bagbin called on other MPs to get tested for their own safety and that of their family and loved ones.
“My directive that all members subject themselves to the test has not yet been complied with by over 60 Members of Parliament. It is true that we are all not safe. Some Members are afflicted by the COVID-19. You may not know who the person is because of the protocols and issues of confidentiality, we have not disclosed those who are now COVID-19 positive,” he stated.
“Members should take the protocols seriously because when I was entering, I had to signal some Members to observe the physical distancing and I saw them immediately move apart,” he said.
