NPP MP charges Covid-19 taskforce to arrest and prosecute persons over breach of Covid-19 safety protocols.

Member of Parliament for Dormaa East, Paul Apraku Twum Barimah has charged COVID 19 task Force to swiftly arrest and prosecute persons who continue to flout the President’s directive on the safety protocols. This the MP believes would serve as deterrent to others.

According to the MP “If we fail to strictly adhere to the laid down rules and COVID 19 protocols, the nation is likely to experience continuous increases in the COVID cases. COVID 19 is now spreading beyond imagination and there is a need to tackle it head on. Strictly adhering to the protocol is key and there out to be a strict enforcement to help reduce the increasing rate. ”He added

President Akufo-Addo last month banned funerals and wedding receptions as part of government’s efforts in dealing the pandemic.  He also observed that all funerals and wedding must be held in the open and must not exceed two hours

The President issued the directive at the nation has seen a surge in covid cases.

But Mr. Twum argues that the failure of the task force to monitor, arrest and prosecute offenders across the country would encourage many people to hold funeral services and recreational activities beyond the 2 hours directive issued by President, Nana Akufo Addo during his Covid address to the state  last month.

‘ ‘Over the weekend I visited some places and I was shocked to realize that many people had organized events beyond the two hour mark. In addition to that most people were not wearing the nose masks, people were shaking hands and hugging each other. This is not good for us. I think the COVID 19 taskforce ought to be proactive and punish people who flout the law, that we can make progress and reduce the rate of COVID 19 infections. He added
