To avoid increase in the 19,300 cases of COVID-19 in Ghana, President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo has gone into self-isolation for two weeks after one of his contacts tested positive.
The president went into isolation as a precautionary measure despite testing negative for COVID-19.
”President Nana Akufo-Addo will henceforth be working from the presidential villa in Accra, the country’s information minister confirmed in a statement released on Saturday”.
The statement read in part: “President Nana Akufo-Addo has gone into isolation after at least one person within his close circle tested positive for COVID-19.
“(The president) has, as (of) today, tested negative, but has elected to take this measure out of the abundance of caution.”
