The Bureau of Public Safety wish to call on the Heath and Information Ministers to immediately convene another press briefing session and disclose further and better particulars about the two confirmed imported cases of COVID-19.
The Ghanaian public, and indeed suspected persons at risk deserve to know the following:
1. Were the two persons picked by the State’s surveillance system at the port of entry or the two checked into a facility by themselves?
2. What date and time did the two arrive in the jurisdiction?
3. What flight did they arrive on?
4. How is the State going to trace contacts around these two infected persons?
We are of a firm conviction that answers to the above will help curb the fears of the public and build greater confidence within the system, and the State’s preparedness to contain the pandemic.
We wish to further request the managers of COVID-19 surveillance and management system in Ghana to always make as much information available as possible in times like this.
