How do you celebrate an expert in coronavirus on their birthday? Don’t tell me you’ll spend the whole day manipulating a fondant to create the scary spiky creature.

Nonetheless, that’s what the husband, Dr Justice Sylverken of KATH and Department of Theoretical and Applied Biology of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) decided to do for Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research (KCCR) in Tropical Medicine, Dr Augustina Angelina Sylverken on her birthday.

Interestingly, the about 6-inch square cake displayed at the quadrangle of the Department, was also bedecked with two surgical masks.

Well, if you’re wondering whether Dr. Sylverken consumed the sugared virus? Don’t worry, it was wearing a mask.
