Fifteen Members of Parliament have tested positive for COVID-19.
Fifty-six staff of the parliamentary service have also tested positive for the virus.
As part of the measures to curb the spread of the virus, Parliament from next week will sit only twice a week, the Speaker, Alban Bagbin, announced on Thursday.
For the infected MPs, “all the 15 members have been contacted and advised to self-isolate. They have also been given prescriptions to facilitate their recovery.”
After complaints that some MPs were dodging the COVID-19 testing, Mr. Bagbin noted that 227 MPs had submitted themselves for testing whilst some other MPs conducted their own tests at private medical facilities.
The leadership of Parliament had been complaining that some MPs who had tested were still coming to Parliament instead of isolating.
