The Ranking Member on the Committee on Health, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh, says government gives off an impression of being good to go with its persistent antigen test at the air terminal notwithstanding the resistance against it.
Addressing Lily Mohammed, Mr. Akandoh showed parcel of nations are managing without the testing at the Airports.
“nations, for example, Uganda, South Africa a ton have done away. The signs from their (Ghana) own books demonstrate that it is not any more pertinent in light of the fact that from 2020 to 2022 information shows the inspiration rate is around 0.9 percent.”
“And that implies on the off chance that you take 100 individuals you couldn’t in fact get one individual with COVID-19,” the Ranking Member on Health unveiled.
He further made sense of that “What is even tricky is that the PCR test is over the antigen test. So before you leave out traveling from the US to Ghana 24-hours, before the outing you should do a PCR test and you should have an adverse outcome before you will be permitted to set out on the excursion. Presently when you have done the PCR test and you get to Ghana. They will confirm the PCR test with an antigen test, what sort of rationale is this.
“That an outsider from Nigeria will come and set up at our Airport and simply be taking 150 dollars and others 50 dollars for each test,” the Member of Parliament (MP) for Juaboso expressed.
As per him, costs for stepping through the exam in different nations are undeniably less to what Ghana is charging voyagers.
“We have documented movements, read articulations and clarify some pressing issues and these individuals are still there as though they have not heard anything. The President hasn’t heard anything since he thinks the man behind the Frontier Health Service is his dear companion. So he ought to bring in cash to the detriment of Ghanaians.”
Be that as it may, the Minority has served notice of their approaching picketing at the Airport on the 30th of March, 2022 to tell the world how the public authority is taking care of explorers.
“I believe that is the main language the President and his kin comprehend. We have done whatever feasible for the public authority to change his situation on such a touchy issue, tragically it has generally fallen on death ears. Along these lines we really want to propel the President to pay attention to the call of the great individuals of this nation,” Mr. Akandoh expressed.
