The Minister of Health has recovered from the coronavirus infection he contracted a couple of weeks ago and is expected back to work “shortly”.
Kwaku Agyemang-Manu contracted Covid-19 in line of duty, according to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who wished him a speedy recovery in his 11th nationwide broadcast on Sunday, June 14.
The Minister of Health, who has been a keen advocate of the safety measures in the prevention of Covid-19 in the country, had to seek medical treatment at the University of Ghana Medical Centre.
He was, however, discharged a few days later after his condition proved stable.
On Thursday, June 25 at the bi-weekly press briefing, Minister of Information Kojo Oppong- Nkrumah said the Dormaa Central Member of Parliament is well now and “expects to be back to work shortly.”
So far, Ghana has recorded a total of 15,473 cases of the virus since the first two index cases in March.
