The deadline for all Members of Parliament in Ghana to get tested for COVID-19 has ended with some legislators yet to know their status.
Speaker of the house Alban Bagbin on Tuesday stated that all Members of Parliament who have not been tested for the COVID-19 virus should do so before the end of the day as virtual sittings continue.
The Coronavirus testing exercise for Members of Parliament commenced last week but was not completed. Since then, only one-third of the house membership has be allowed during sittings which now take place from the tent structure put up for President Akufo-Addo’s inauguration as it is more spacious and will allow for social distancing.
Speaking during the conduct of business at the plenary, the Speaker, Mr. Bagbin urged the MPs to undertake the exercise.
