The Ghana Health Service (GHS), is supporting the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research, to look into alleged falsification of COVID-19 test results.
Director of Public Health at the Ghana Health Service, Dr Franklin Asiedu-Bekoe said the Service is monitoring the development and waiting for the outcome of the Institute’s investigations to confirm the validity of the certificate of the COVID-19 test results displayed on social media.
He said the Heath Service will look into records at the Kotoka International Airport to find out if the name displayed on the alleged results certification from the Institute had gone through the system and check its initial results.
He said it will be very difficult to buy such a certificate from Ghana unless one fakes it.
Mr. Asiedu-Bekoe described the allegation as an eye opener for all and expressed the need for the Institute to take a look at its systems.
The Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research on Sunday (January 17) said it has begun investigations into alleged falsification of COVID-19 test results at the Institute, following reports on social media claiming breaches of the COVID-19 testing protocols.
