Nana Akufo-Addo Goes Into Self-Isolation Over Covid-19 Fears
Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has gone into a mandatory 14–day self isolation after a person in his inner circle tested positive for COVID -19.
A statement signed by Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Information Minister said on the advice of doctors, the president is from “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 [July 4]”.
That negative test notwithstanding, the statement said, the president “elected to take this measure out of the abundance of caution.”
