A former Communications Minister during the erstwhile Mahama administration, Dr. Omane Boamah, has raised red flags over the posture of the diplomatic community in Ghana in the wake of the outbreak of the Coronavirus.

According to the staunch critic of the governing New Patriotic Party, many diplomatic missions are seeking to move their nationals outside the country.

On the basis of that, the former Communications Minister questioned if their motive for intending to evacuate their citizens is a result of government’s failure to handle the situation leading to a likely uncontrolled spread of the virus.

A tweet by the outspoken NDC member reads, “Keep your ears closer to the diplomatic community. More are contemplating evacuating their citizens from Ghana. What does this Signal? Worsening COVID-19 in Ghana? Have we lost the fight so soon?”

He further entreated government to “act decisively before COVID- 19 “surprises” us some more”.

On Monday, there were reports of British nationals who were left stranded at the Kotoka International Airport after authorities rescinded their decision to grant them permission to leave the country.

The President in a national broadcast on Saturday announced that the country was going to close its borders for the next 21 days to check the spread of the virus.

So far, Ghana’s confirmed Coronavirus cases have shot up to 65 as of Wednesday after about 30 persons out of about 1000 who were quarantined upon arrival into the country tested positive for the virus.

The numbers are expected to rise in the coming days, according to the Information Minister, as the results of about 600 persons are yet to be finalised.

The country has recorded no recoveries and the current official figure for number of deaths remains at 2.
