The Majority Leader in Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has warned MPs and other staff of Parliament who tested positive for the coronavirus disease to desist from coming to the House.

Mr. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said contrary to the laid down rules and regulations, some MPs, staff and journalists who tested positive for the virus are still coming to the House, thereby endangering the lives of others.

On two occasions, the Speaker of Parliament ordered a mandatory testing of all MPs, Staff of the Parliamentary Service and all regular visitors to Parliament, including the Parliamentary Press Corps.

Though the results of the tests have not been made public, it was revealed that two MPs and 13 staff who did the test on the first two days, tested positive for the virus.

It is believed that more people might have tested positive in the subsequent tests.

The Majority Leader warned that if the conduct continues, the names of those who tested positive will be made public.
