Coronavirus: Parade patients on TV as evidence for Ghanaians to believe - Bagbin

Member of Parliament for Nandoli/Kalio, Alban Bagbin has called on the government to parade patients of COVID-19 cases on television as a form of evidence.

According to the longest-serving Member of Parliament in Ghana, feedback from Ghanaians shows that they are finding it difficult to believe the numbers put out by government officials including the health minister of cases count, recoveries and deaths.

“I want to see on TV some evidence of death on admission” he requested.

He made the comments after the Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu appeared the House to update them on Ghana’s situation.

Mr. Bagbin commended all the Frontline workers including the president, security officers, and others for putting their lives in danger to assist in fighting the pandemic.
