Ghana – The president of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo is now working from isolation after he went on a 14-day quarantine as a precaution when a member of his close circle tested positive for coronavirus.
The person who tested positive for the virus has still not been revealed.
A government statement released on Saturday said although the president had tested negative, he would follow the advice of his doctors as a precautionary measure.
With just over 20,000 confirmed cases, Ghana is one of the worst affected countries in sub-Saharan Africa, although the country has conducted far more tests than most nations in the region.
Ghana has recorded 122 deaths.
On Friday, the country’s deputy trade and industry minister Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah resigned after breaking self-isolation measures after testing positive.
