Ghana's Minister of Health, Mr Kwaku Agyemang Manu has "recovered" after getting infected with COVID-19 weeks ago.
This was disclosed by the Deputy Health Minister, Dr Bernard Okoe Boye who said his boss has already resumed official duties.
He said last Friday, Mr Agyemang Manu was was at the Ga East Hospital to inspect the projects that are going on with the treatment centres.
“Once he has been asymptomatic for two weeks, I don’t want to even go into his test results, but two weeks of being asymptomatic, you have recovered. It’s been two weeks, so the deduction is that he has recovered. So the Health Minister is back to work. He started work before this interview so I guess he will be at work,” Dr Okoe Boye said in an interview with Citi FM.
The Deputy Health Minister also provided an update of the status of the Member of Parliament (MP) for Okere, Mr Dan Botwe and the Minister for Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempehwho had also announced that they were awaiting results of their COVID-19 tests after they were admitted at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC).
He said: “I have had WhatsApp chats with the Education Minister, I know Dan Botwe is fine. I spoke to the doctors who are attending to Mac Manu and they tell me he is in high spirits and very stable so let’s wish them well.”
