There were some rumours making rounds a few weeks ago that the President, Nana Akufo Addo has tested positive for coronavirus owning to his numerous travels outside the country even before one case was recorded in Ghana.
The rumours were reportedly spread by his political opponents so it deemed it’s appropriate that he clears all doubts by voluntarily going for a test. So a day before his birthday (March 28) he went for the test which came out negative according to his personal physician, Dr Patrina Takyi-Ankrah.
Addressing the press on Wednesday, April 1, Dr Takyi-Ankrah said the First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo also tested negative for the disease.
“On the day before the president’s birthday, we tested him and the first lady and his daughters and all the staff of this household and I am happy to announce that all the tests came back negative,” she said.
Dr. Takyi Ankrah also said close family relations of the President have also tested negative for the disease.
