COVID-19 FUNDS NOT MISAPPROPRIATED BUT DIRECTED INTO HEALTH FACILITIES - HEALTH MINISTER

Claims that President Akufo-Addo stole covid-19 funding obtained from donor nations and the World Bank have been refuted by the health minister, Kwaku Agyemang-Manu.


He claims that the funds collected from donors in exchange for their assistance in helping the Ghanaian government fight the virus and get rid of it from the populace have been used to build health facilities.


When the Minister paid a working visit to the Ashanti area to look at government projects that were being built, the Minister, who is also the Member of Parliament for the Dormaa Central Constituency in the Bono region, disclaimed. The Sawua Infectious Disease Centre, located in the Bosomtwe District and close to the Ashanti Regional Hospital, was one of the projects he examined.

One of the facilities President Akufo-Addo vowed to construct for the nation is the infectious disease centre, which would support the country's initiatives to limit and stop the spread of infectious illnesses, particularly during epidemics.


"We're planning to expand our current facilities and set up new ones for testing across every location. In his eighth update on improved measures to combat the coronavirus, President Akufo-Addo said, "We will establish three infectious disease control centres for each of the zones of our country, i.e., Coastal, Middle Belt, and Northern, with the overall objective of setting up a Ghana Centre for Disease Control."


The MP told reporters that there were now twelve of these while he was touring the site. Although Nana Addo has gotten a lot, we don't know how the funds were used. These are a few of the physical items we have ordered. So, Nana Addo's creations are now visible, and there will be much more in the future.


Ghanaians would be astounded by the amount of money they allege Nana Addo borrowed and hasn't used. Propaganda, that. You will be able to view what is there when this develops.


According to Kwaku Agyemang Manu, when the government started receiving the cash, they planned to use them to create infrastructures all throughout the nation so that "in case the infection continues or subsequent epidemics, we would have facilities widely scattered throughout the country." In that case, this facility fits the bill.

He said that while the government initially had 12, by the end of the year, "we feel we would have added a few more." The Sawua, Dodowa, Goaso, Sunyani, Cape Coast, Zebila, and the Tamale Teaching Hospital attachment are a few of the twelve institutions.
