Provide more testing kits if Akufo-Addo’s 50k isn’t enough –Vim Lady Challenges NDC

Broadcast Journalist, Afia Pokua popularly called Vim Lady is challeng ing the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to procure more test kits for the country if they are dissatisfied with what was announced by the President.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo last week in a televised address to the nation, announced that 50,000 more test kits had been procured and would be imported into the country soon.

“More personal protection equipment are being
procured to beef up supplies for our frontline health workers. Fifty
thousand[50,000] additional test kits have been ordered, and are expected in
the country very shortly”, he announced on March 21, 2020.

But Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) COVID-19
Technical Team, Prosper Bani has stated the 50,000 testing kits for the novel
coronavirus by government is not enough.

He made this
statement during the press conference adding that testing is critical and
citizens should be tested fast.

“Without
testing we shall not know who has the virus or not. The more you test the more
you have control of the virus”, he said.

Prosper Bani stated
leaders must demonstrate where the isolation centers are, how they are being
manned, the equipment provided to front-line health workers and how they expect
treatment to take place afterwards.

We need an
aggressive contact tracing and reporting of suspected cases and we would
continue to follow all the contacts that have been traced, how they have been
quarantined and being monitored aggressively”, he added.

But
the journalist wondered why the NDC cannot also in their accord and love for
Ghanaians procure some for the country.

“50,000 corona kits not enough-NDC Me: Can NDC give Ghana more please”, she quizzed.
