The African Centre of Parliamentary Journalism and Research (ACPJR) is calling on the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Ocquaye to direct all Members of Parliament to work from home instead of converging at the House for business.
The ACPJR's call comes in the wake of the 16 confirmed cases of Covid-19 announced by the Ghana Health Service earlier today.
According to ACPJR, many parliamentarians have been exposed to Coronavirus ridden countries this month alone, which he explained as the reason for his call.
The group is also demanding immediate fumigation of all parliamentary buildings to prevent further spread of the virus which has affected 16 persons in Ghana.
