The Vice President of the Ghana Medical Association(GMA) Dr. Frank Serebour has revealed that persons who have recovered from coronavirus are less potential to transmit the virus to others
“Everything being right, recovered persons develop antibodies hence such a person might not be infected again to transmit the virus”, he revealed adding that people who have fully recovered are able to break the chain of transmission.
He noted that recovering from coronavirus is just like healing from malaria so people must stop the unnecessary stigmatization which has become a big problem for health workers across the nation in integrating recovered persons back to their families.
Speaking on Pure Fm in a studio discussion, monitored by MyNewsGH.com, Dr. Frank Serebour noted that, “Those that have recovered are less dangerous than those who do not know their COVID 19 status”.
The medical expert revealed that people who do not know their status are likely to be carrying the virus without showing symptoms hence there is a high tendency of spreading the virus than those who have recovered adding that, “The most important thing is for us to still go by the precautionary measures laid down to be followed”, he said.
Though some individuals and institutions have applauded the government of Ghana’s effort so far in the fight against stigmatization, front workers have said stigmatization of victims is quite disturbing including family members of some recovered individuals.
