Minister in charge of Information cum Member of Parliament for Ofoase Ayirebi Constituency – Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has admitted government cannot say it has put up every measure needed to fight the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country because it came at an unexpected time with no budget made in that expense in the 2020 Budget.
He disclosed that the emergency allocated funds from the 2020 budget statement cannot meet the expenses made with respect to the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, therefore the US$100 million allocated fund.
He further explained:
“ . . We can not say all is perfect but we have now beef-up our preparedness towards COVID-19 because it came up unexpectedly just as other countries are as well struggling to get preventive measures. Finance Minister will soon account for every lost made since I don’t have figures to that effect.”
