As reported on his Facebook- https://www.facebook.com/President.J.J.Rawlings/ – page a couple of days ago, former President Rawlings was admitted to the cardiothoracic unit of the Korle Bu Teaching hospital a week ago as a precautionary measure to manage a low blood count condition. The primary cause has since been detected and managed.
He was not rushed to the hospital as erroneously published in a newspaper on Wednesday, September 26, 2018.
The Medical team who managed him have not recommended any further treatment outside the shores of Ghana. The former President has no immediate plans of seeking medical treatment outside the country.
The former President is grateful to all well-wishers who have called or sent messages of concern. He is also thankful to doctors and nurses at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital for their care during his stay at the hospital.
