Ghana’s Parliament is denying media publications that some Members of Parliament and staff of its parliamentary service have tested positive for the novel coronavirus pandemic.

According to the august body, results of last week’s mandatory COVID-19 tests are not yet known hence such publications can not be accurate.

A report by Accra-based Starr News disclosed that two members of Parliament and 13 staff have tested positive for COVID-19 after the results of the mandatory testing started trickling in.

The publication which fell short of revealing the identities of the affected MPs also added that effective contact tracing has been initiated among the MPs to curb the spread of the disease.

But a press statement by Parliament’s Public Affairs Directorate has categorically denied the claims and called on Starr FM to retract and apologise for the inaccurate reportage.

“Parliament would like to state categorically that the results of the tests are not yet known and so the report by Starrfmonline is not true. Parliament would, therefore, like to urge Starrfmonline to withdraw the said report and update its audience with the relevant information to the effect that the results from the tests are unknown to Parliament.”

The statement signed by the Director of Public Affairs, Kate Addo also reiterated that “those who test positive will be called directly by the testing team.”
