New electoral roll: Number of captured voters understandable – Prof Gyampo

Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Aboagye has called on persons who have tested positive for Covid-19 to inform the Covid-19 District Management Team of their respective districts to prevent duplicated testing and aid effective contact tracing.

He told ABC News that they have scaled up the contact tracing exercise due to the surge in cases, so there is a chance some already tested persons would be captured again if they do not inform the district teams on time.

According to Dr. Aboagye, most people with information feel reluctant to share with the teams, and that is slowing down the process and making it difficult to get accurate figures.

He assured the public that enhanced contact tracing is still ongoing so there is no need to  panic.

Dr. Patrick Aboagye also debunked recent allegations that GHS owes COVID-19 contact tracers who worked during the lockdown period, saying that “government does not owe anybody as of today.”

He said records show all of them have been paid, and asked the public to disregard any information to the contrary.

It would be recalled that some persons who worked as contact tracers, and were expected to be paid GHC150 a week each, complained of some arrears owed to them, but Dr. Aboagye said to date, all the arrears have been settled.

Ghana’s Covid 19 case stands at 20,085.
