President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo goes into COVID-19 self-isolation

The President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo is going into self isolation for 14 days after a person in his close circle tested positive for coronavirus, the government said in a statement on Saturday without identifying the person involved.

“He has, as at today, tested negative, but has elected to take this measure out of abundance of caution,” the government said, adding that he took the advice of his doctors and will continue working while in isolation in compliance with COVID-19 protocols.

Ghana has recorded 19,388 coronavirus cases and 117 deaths.

The deputy trade and industry minister Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah resigned on Friday for violating coronavirus self-isolation measures after he tested positive for the virus.
