Parliament has dismissed report by Starrfmonline that two Members of Parliament (MP) have tested positive for coronavirus.
A report by the online portal had claimed that two lawmakers and some staff of Parliament have tested positive for the virus.
But Parliament a statement issued in reaction to the report says its COVID-19 test results are not yet out.
The statement signed by Kate Addo, Director of Public Affairs of Parliament, says the Starrfmonline report is not “true.”
Parliament has therefore urged “Starrfmonline to withdraw the said report and update its audience with the relevant information to the effect that the results from the tests are unknown to Parliament.”
It says “the confidentiality protocol is that, that those who test positive will be called directly by the testing team. Officially Parliament is unaware of any such call and therefore there hasn’t been any official figures giving by the National Covid-19 Response Team.”
