In What may make so-called conspiracy theorists green with envy, Ghana’s Minister of Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has confirmed that people who test positive for COVID-19 will be stamped with a tracking device to monitor their movement.
The tracking device will be meant for any person (both citizens and foreigners) who tests positive on arrival into Ghana and asked to self-quarantine may be required to wear a tracking device whose cost will reportedly be absorbed by the government.
Ms. Owusu-Ekuful made this known in a statement on plans by Ghana to digitally track all travellers and monitor their movements in and out of public places such as conferences, hotels, churches, restaurants and pubs.
“Wearable quarantine monitoring devices may also be introduced to facilitate effective monitoring and supervision of those undergoing self-quarantine and protect health care workers and other critical staff from COVID hotspots,” Mrs. Owusu-Ekuful stated.
“These new digital services shall be delivered at no cost to citizens or related government agencies as a result of collaboration with technology companies, telecom operators and technical institutions. All citizens and organisations are hereby strongly encouraged to cooperate and comply to guarantee the safe reopening of Ghana to the rest of the world.”
This tracking and monitoring agenda of global leaders have been flagged by international experts and commentators who have been ridiculed as conspiracy theorists. Some have even suggested that the entire COVID-19 pandemic is an elaborate global conspiracy by governments and big pharmaceutical companies to force-feed the entire world population with vaccines in a multi-trillion-dollar industry.
Ghana is set to soon open its borders, and this tracking agenda is one way it claims it will have a handle over visitors into the country who may be carriers of the deadly COVID-19 influenza-like disease.
