Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Letsa, has said three suspected coronavirus cases sent to the Noguchi Memorial Institute from various facilities in the Region tested negative.

He said the Regional Coronavirus Response Team had, therefore, scaled up information sharing measures to contain the pandemic and urged all to abide by the protocols to avoid spreading the disease.

Dr Lesta said this on Tuesday when he paid a courtesy call on the Regional Immigration Office to acquaint himself with the preparedness of officers and men of the Service towards preventing the spread of the disease.

He warned that any Immigration official who would compromise professionalism for personal gain would be punished by law.

The Minister entreated the Officers and men to adhere to the basic protective measures recommended by the World Health Organisation, handwashing, maintaining social distancing, avoid touching one’s face, practising respiratory hygiene and stay at home if unwell.

He appealed to all Ghanaians to add the spiritual dimension to the fight against coronavirus as announced by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to observe the national day for prayer and fasting.

Dr Letsa asked the media to avoid spreading fear and panic.
