Mubarak Mohammed Muntaka has revealed that two Parliamentarians and 13 staff have so far tested positive for Covid-19.
According to him, the infected persons were informed of their status after Speaker of Parliament directed mass testing of all members and staff of the House last week.
Speaking to Daniel Dadzie on Prime Morning on Joy Prime, the Chief Whip explained that the infected MPs and staff have been isolated while contact tracing has commenced.
Earlier, Director of Public Affairs, Kate Addo said reports of confirmed infection were false adding that results of Covid-19 tests conducted on the personnel have not been received.
But Mr Muntaka described her assessment as untrue adding that it has the potential of causing fear and panic in the House.
