John Nkengasong, Africa’s Director of the Center for Disease Control (CDC)

The African Union Commission (AU) is appealing to its member states not to repatriate other African nationals who test positive for the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) while in jurisdictions different from their home countries.

Rather, the Commission wants such persons to be treated just like any other patient of the disease in the countries they tested positive.

According to the Director for the African Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) at the AU, Dr John Nkengasong, it would be out of place to repatriate such persons.

His comment followed the government of Ghana’s indications to repatriate 10 ECOWAS nationals who tested positive for COVID-19 after being arrested and placed into mandatory quarantine in Tamale, in the Northern Region recently.

The Minister of Information, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, had on Sunday, March 29, 2020 given an indication that the ten would not be treated in Ghana, a decision many have described would rather put the lives of many others at risk of contracting the virus should they be repatriated.

“If a national of a member state tests positive in a country different from their home country, they should seek care in that country, and officials ought to engage with physicians on how to adequately manage the process of care,” Dr Nkengasong said.

Video Press Conference

Addressing journalists across the continent via video conference, he maintained that member states need to intensify their ability to test and detect patients, isolate them and find their contact to be monitored as containment strategies.

Giving an update of the pandemic in Africa, he said as of 9 am East African Time on April 2, 2020, Africa had recorded an increased number of 6,213 cases in 49 countries, with 221 deaths and 469 recoveries.

The AU, he said, has presently deployed an online platform in delivering training on laboratory diagnostics, surveillance, and infection prevention and control for member states due to travel restriction.

Similarly, the Africa CDC, he said is providing support to countries through the distribution of test kits and other logistics to assist in the care and treatment of patients.

Mobile Laboratories

Dr Nkengasong also pointed out that, with countries such as South Africa, Ghana, Algeria, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote d’ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria and Senegal recording increased positive cases, member states ought to quickly adopt the use of mobile laboratories to undertake door-to-door testing of people in areas affected by the infection.

Already, South Africa, he said had commenced using the mobile laboratories to test and identify those infected and isolate them as containment measures.

He stressed that the lockdown of cities across the continent identified as epicentres of the disease should come with the ability to quickly test people and find their contacts should such results return positive.

“You must have a good specimen system that you can supplement the mobile laboratories with so that the turnaround time for results becomes efficient so people do not become overly apprehensive,” Dr Nkengasong said.

He said that as the numbers keep increasing on the continent, “We need to bear in mind that the virus will find its way into vulnerable communities and sit itself there and that’s where you see it exploding and spreading further into multiple countries as witnessed in Europe and other places,” he said.

Commending governments in the affected countries for the lockdowns being implemented in cities where the infections are spreading, he said, such would go to minimise social harms.

The Director however, encouraged them to build local partnerships and let the communities understand the benefit of the lockdown.

“Create champions from the community, liaise with chiefs and opinion leaders, sensitise them and get them to understand the effects of the social distancing as a key proven method for controlling the outbreak,” Dr Nkengasong counselled.

Africa’s Own Vaccines

Asked whether Africa is looking at research solutions towards finding its own vaccines to cure the pandemic instead of always looking up to the international community for such, Dr Nkengasong said that, although some 30 candidate vaccines are undergoing trials, l’Institut Pasteur, located in Senegal which is Africa’s foremost developer of vaccines presently has no such focus.

However, he emphasised that there are groups that are looking into vaccines testing which require a coordinated effort.

The Coalition of Epidemic Preparedness and Innovation (CEPI), he said also has a variety of vaccines they are currently pushing through, “but regardless of who is producing it, we should not expect a vaccine within the next 12 months, that’s the unfortunate situation,” he underscored.

On the recent Anti-COVID-19 Fund established by the AU, Dr Nkengasong said that there are engagements ongoing for bilateral and multilateral support for the fund.

“There is an appeal for multiple partnership and they have seen a lot of goodwill expressed to support from bilateral and multilateral partners of Africa, but we need to see that those goodwill are being translated into concrete actions,” he pointed out.

The Managing Editor of New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has reacted to some ‘inconsistent’ and ‘dishonest’ claims by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) over the coronavirus pandemic.

Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo, the veteran journalist punched holes in a number of statements made by the party and some of its members including National Communications Director, Sammy Gyamfi and Member of Parliament for Juaboso, Kwabena Minta Akandoh.

At the peak of the outbreak in the Chinese province Hubei, the NDC led a campaign for the evacuation of Ghanaian students in China.

The government turned down those requests and instead sent relief items to the students.

With the situation in China normalizing and no Ghanaian casualty, Kweku Baako holds that the NDC has been exposed.

He described the NDC’s approach as ‘fear mongering’ and an attempt to create a negative image for the government.

“This call for us to bring back our brothers and sisters in China, the context disturbed me a bit. They made it look like the government was insensitive and uncaring. There was an element of scaremongering and it was based on that fact that the virus started there and if we don’t go for them, they were going to die”.

“I listened to some of the students and here in Ghana the NDC MPs also generated some amount of fear and to cast the government in a character of being insensitive. What I’m here now is that none of the students was affected so where was the fear. The students are in the danger zone but were not affected so why was the fear mongering by the NDC. The fear generated by the NDC has no bases, he said.

He also described as ‘untrue’ a supposed claim by Mintah Akandoh that the World Health Organization in February, rated Ghana’s preparation for the virus as zer(0).

Citing a fact-finding report by the Media Foundation for West Africa, Baako insisted that WHO never made such conclusions on their assessment of Ghana’s preparedness for the virus.

“They claim WHO rated us zero. I think Akandoh made that statement and it turned out not to be true. The Media Foundation for West Africa did a fact-finding on the claims and it turned out be false”.

“Quoting a portion from the report, Baako said ‘Akandoh, we started talking about preparations before WHO came in to scores us zero for not being prepared. Verdict: completely false. Explanation given was that in February, WHO issued a report on Ghana’s preparedness status based on their review as at February 7, 2020. The statement rated Ghana on various aspect of preparations including laboratory capacity, surveillance and coordination and overall preparation. The only category Ghana was rated zero percent was case management which is understandable because Ghana had not recorded any case at the time”, he said.

Kweku Baako also reacted to claims by Sammy Gyamfi and Alhassan Suhuyini that the measures being implemented by the government in the fight against the virus were proposed by former President, John Mahama.

“I’m hearing that the President’s address and proposals were stolen from Mahama. When did Mahama speak? If I’m not mistaken, Mahama spoke on April 4. They claim they President is executing prescriptions by President Mahama”.

“Has anyone read Ofori Atta’s presentation to Parliament on March 11 and 30. He told Parliament that measures are being put in place to close a possible financial gap in the 2020 Budget that could result from the coronavirus”.

“On March 30 before Mahama spoke, he (Ofori Atta) came out with a document captioned “Covid Alleviation Programme”.

Paragraph 38 of Ofori Atta’s speech to Parliament reads “Mr Speaker, that is why to mitigate the impact of coronavirus on businesses and households and ensure that economic activities are sustained while minimizing job losses. The Ministry of Finance will immediately release an amount of GHC1million upon approval by Parliament”.

“The Ministry is proposing to use an equivalent of $219m from the Stabilization Fund. The cap will focus on areas that will provide maximum result on alleviating the impact of the virus pandemic with a focus on protecting job losses, livelihoods, supporting small businesses and ensuring the programme is efficiently and sustainably implemented.

“Targeted business and households will include those in the health sector, education sector, hospitality industry, small and medium enterprises and households hit by the coronavirus. The specific details of the cap will be fashioned out shortly. So, if you check the sequence, the point that someone has stolen someone’s idea is unsustainable.
