Member of Parliament for the Kumbungu Constituency, Ras Mubarak, in the scare od COVID-19 seems to be taking precautionary measures to protect himself.
He was spotted Tuesday morning, March 3, 2020, in Parliament, wearing a nose mask while seated quietly at his designated spot.
The Member of Parliament has times without number expressed worry and concern about the fast-spreading viral disease.
According to a report filed by GhanaWeb, he raised concerns about President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s 12-day tour in Europe despite the alarming rate of the spread of the disease.
He, therefore, called for a compulsory quarantine for the mandatory 14-day supervision, to ensure the President does not import the deadly Codvid-19 from his European trip into the country.
About 48 countries globally are dealing with cases of the deadly coronavirus with West African countries, Nigeria, Senegal and Tunisia being the latest to have been affected.
The WHO has classified Ghana among Priority 1 countries in the Africa region for being at risk based on flights and passenger volumes.
In other news, Pope Francis, head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican city, has reportedly tested negative to the Coronavirus, bringing a sigh of relief amid tension generated by the health state of the aged pontiff.
The 83-year-old Catholic leader was forced to cancel a string of engagements last week after showing symptoms suggestive of common cold including cough, fever, chills and sore throat.
Pope Francis' health condition sparked frightening rumors with local media reporting that he might have contracted the deadly coronavirus after meeting with Catholic faithful during the Ash Wednesday events on February 26, 2020.
