Previously, the president attended various meetings and mini gatherings without a nose mask although there was the COVID-19 outbreak in Ghana. Following the observation, Dr Patrina Techi-Ankrah, Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s personal physician narrated how the president was strictly protected against COVID-19. The medical doctor made the statements known at the press briefing that was held under the auspices of the Ministry of Information on April 1, 2020.
She indicated that although the president is not seen in masks or gloves during his meetings, all measures including regular hand-washing, social distancing and use of hand sanitizers, are put in place to ensure that Nana Addo is absolutely safe.
This makes it interesting that Nana decided to storm the Mayday venue with a face mask this time but it also appears that he’s leading the fight against COVID-19 by example. Meanwhile, Ghana has recorded 403 more cases of the novel coronavirus or COVID-19, sending the total number of confirmed cases to 2,074 from the previous 1,671 recorded.
A According to the official website of the Ghana Health Service, the total number of recoveries, as well as deaths, have also changed to 212 and 17 respectively. 88% of all the cases reported have not had any travel history as only 12% have been traced to some evidence of travel.
