“It was has been brought to the Honourable Minister of Health recent report to this office that some members of the House of Representatives are refusing to subject themselves to medical screening at airports.

“As you are aware, this airport screening is our primary line of defence and refusal by any citizen to subject to this test is a threat to our nation.
