Majority Leader, Osei-Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has said it is only those conducing the testing of COVID-19 in Parliament who can confirm that three Members of Parliament and thirteen staff have tested positive.

According to him when he exited the chamber on Tuesday May 26, 2020 some journalists caught up with him on the issue, little did he know that one media house has set “Ghana on fire”.

“I told you I did not know and cannot confirm if 2 MPs and 13 staff have tested positive. We agreed that whiles carrying out the test that anybody who tested positive, the information would be transmitted to the individual person”.

Mr. Osei-Kyei noted that the test is confidential and there should be some circumspection.

“Those of us there we might not know if the other fellow has it and the medium used is speculation”. He noted that it is in the interest of individuals to subject themselves to the test.
