Members of the Parliamentary Press Corps (PPC) have undergone a mandatory Covid-19 testing to ascertain their corona-virus status.
The mandatory testing for Covid-19 is part of various measures being put in place by the leadership of Ghana’s Parliament to stop the spread of the novel Corona-virus.
It will be recalled that the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Prof. Aaron Michael Oquaye gave a directive to Members of Parliament (MPs) to undergo a mandatory testing for Covid-19 immediately the August House returned from a recess to begin the Third Sitting of the Second Meeting of Parliament.
However, Mr. Speaker’s directive to Members of the House was extended to the staffs, the PPC and temporal workers of Parliament.
To this end members of the Corps today gone through the testing process and are awaiting results.
