"There Is Proper Testing System At The Airport" - Dr. Kuma-Aboagye (Video)
The Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kumah Aboagye has refuted claims that the COVID-19 testing at the Kotoka International Airport is not done properly and the results being released are false.
According to him, the Ghana Health Service has put proper measures in place to ensure that all those traveling into the country through the airport are properly tested.
"The necessary follow-up test is also done to ensure that the right results are gotten from the passengers who tested positive for the virus," he said while addressing Journalists in Accra on Wednesday.
There have been series of claims and allegations against the Ghana Health Service for not undertaking a better testing system at the Airport.
Dr. Kumah Aboagye stressed that the testing system at the Airport ensures that all travelers are properly tested, while those who are infected with the virus are isolated.
He said "There is no way we will try and change figures and their testing procedures at the airport as being reported"
Dr. Kuma-Aboagye called on all and sundry not to believe such claims.
He also revealed that the country's current active cases in the various schools stand at 304 cases.
"The case count in the schools has increased again as compared to previous data available but does not mean the virus is getting out of hand" he noted.
The Director-General hinted that one only death has been recorded out of the 304 cases recorded in the various schools.
