On his part, the Builsa South NDC  constituency secretary,  Richard Kazi, said “the MP (Dr Apaak)  appreciates the efforts of the health directorate for their commitment to serving the constituency wholeheartedly amidst the  challenges they are confronted with”.

In an earlier interview with Today, Dr Apaak  said the donation was his widow’s mite, but  was hopeful that it would go a long away to help his constituents in this crisis  time  the country finds itself.

He also added his voice to the numerous  calls on Ghanaians to adhere to all the  preventive measures  issued by the GhanaHealth Service (GHS) so as to contain  the spread of the virus.

Receiving the items on behalf of the district health director,   acting public health nurse, Ramatu Halutie  Ahmed disclosed that, “ my  outfit does  not   have a single bed at their isolation centre”, a situation he said , would make it difficult to accommodate  in case there was any suspected case.
