Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin believes if bodies of victims who have died from COVID-19 are shown on TV, the public will no longer doubt the existence of the disease.
He said based on what he has gathered from people he has interacted with, there is very little believe that there is such a disease in the country.
Contributing to deliberations on the Floor of Parliament after an update to the House by the Health Minister, the Nadowli Kaleo MP called for the use of what he calls the shock therapy to increase awareness of the pandemic in the country.
“The important thing is that the people we are leading, they want to see. In fact, I want to see on Television some evidence of death because when you state that this number of people are dead but they are not seeing anything like that [it will not give them the shock of their life]. I believe in shock therapy. We need shock therapy to wake them up from slumber and make them know COVID-19 is real.”
