Covid-19: Akufo-Addo implores Ghanaians to wish infected Health Minister well

On Saturday, news broke that the Health Minister is recuperating at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) after testing positive for the coronavirus disease.

Sources told Joy News that the MP has been receiving treatment at the hospital for some time now.

The 64-year-old Minister who is said to be in a stable condition and not in the ICU was reportedly admitted on Tuesday.

Mr Agyeman Manu according to sources had tested positive for some time but was only brought to the hospital this week.

According to the Health Ministry, he has taken some days off and has since not been seen at work.

Mr Agyeman Manu is the latest government official to test positive for Covid-19 after the High Commissioner to the United Kingdom, Papa Owusu Ankomah was taken into an ICU on April 10, in the UK.

The Mayor of Sekondi-Takoradi, Anthony Kobina Kurentsi Sam has died, a few weeks after his personal driver tested positive for Covid-19.
