The testing exercise for Parliamentarians and staff for COVID-19 as directed by the Parliamentary Service Board would end today.

The exercise started on Wednesday the 20th May 2020 where most of the lawmakers and staff of the Legislature participated in the exercise in their numbers.

Friday’s exercise saw mostly Journalists and workers in Parliament trooping in their numbers to undertake the exercise.

The medical doctor in charge of Parliaments clinic, Dr. Prince Pambo in an interview noted that it is an exercise that everybody is supposed to be doing in Ghana.

“You cannot make the testing mandatory because there is no national policy to that effect. Medically and ethically we do not force people to do those tests, we are in abnormal times so when you appeal to people they come out to do it”.
