“We all know that this pandemic has been imported, so, be careful that in the name of dollars, you don’t bring in foreigners who haven’t got the clearance that he’s not infected by the disease. I need not remind you that the virus is an importation from foreigners and those who had contact with them prior to the lockdown”. Samuel Atta said.
