Akufo-Addo in isolation over Covid-19 fears

President Akufo-Addo has elected to go into self isolation after “at least one person within his close circle tested positive for Covid-19 today,” according to a statement from the Information Ministry.

The statement, signed by Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said: “On the advise of doctors, the President of the Republic of Ghana, is from today, July 4, 2020, taking a 14-day precautionary self-isolation measure in compliance with Covid-19 protocols.”

 The statement did not name the member of the president’s inner circle who has tested positive. It, however, pointed out that the president himself has tested negative “as at today”.

That negative test notwithstanding, the statement said, the president “elected to take this measure out of the abundance of caution.”

The statement added: “The President during this precautionary self-isolation period, will be working from the Presidential Villa at the Jubilee House.”

This comes just a day after the President toured some registration centres in the Greater Accra Region.
