Senior Minister Yaw Osafo-Marfo has tested positive for the coronavirus – COVID-19!
The minister’s diagnosis was announced by the Information Minister Kojo Oppon Nkrumah during a press briefing.
“Senior Minister Osafo-Maafo has been informed that his sample taken has returned positive for COVID-19,” Oppong Nkrumah said.
“As of today [July 7, 2020], he will commence treatment for COVID-19 from home, and in consonance with the transparency that we are bringing to Ghanaians, he has instructed that we inform the general public accordingly,” he added.
Maafo is the latest government official to test positive for the virus which the government is treating like a joke despite its rising case count.
Despite all that, Ghanaians are still being asked to queue for an id card at this time, with the case count over 20,000 now.
