Ghana’s Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman Manu has tested positive for coronavirus and is currently recovering at a hospital.
Sources indicate that the Minister contracted the virus after his wife and son were both admitted at the Intensive Care Unit of UGMC.
The Ministry of Health corroborated the information as checks suggest that Mr Agyeman Manu has taken a few days of.
However, the press briefings have not been organised in a while with no explanations.
This is happening at a time when the Majority in Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has expressed his frustration at how MPs, Parliamentary Service staff, and journalists who tested positive for the virus have refused to self-isolate.
The Minority Chief Whip, Mubarak Mohammed Muntaka, had insisted that two of his fellow MPs and 13 parliamentary staff had tested positive.
“What happened in Parliament and what you heard [about MPs testing positive for COVID-19] is the fact. It is the truth,” Mr. Muntaka insisted.
