Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo-Maafo has tested positive for COVID-19. This was announced by the Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah today, July 7, 2020. He made the announcement at a press briefing organised by the Ministry of Information to update Ghanaians on the country’s management of the virus.

“Senior Minister Osafo-Maafo has been informed that his sample taken has returned positive for COVID-19,” Oppong Nkrumah said. Oppong Nkrumah added that the Senior Minister is, however, receiving treatment from home.

“As of today [July 7, 2020], he will commence treatment for COVID-19 from home, and in consonance with the transparency that we are bringing to Ghanaians, he has instructed that we inform the general public accordingly,” he added.

This comes on the back of reports that a number of government officials have tested positive for the virus. The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has since Saturday, July 4, 2020, been on self-isolation after coming close to someone who tested positive for Coronavirus.

“On the advice of doctors, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is from today, July 4, 2020, taking a fourteen (14) day precautionary self-isolation measure in compliance with COVID-19 protocols,” a statement from the Presidency announced over the weekend.

The statement noted that “the President has elected to do so after at least one person within his close circle tested positive for COVID-19 today.” The statement said, although President Akufo-Addo has tested negative for the virus, he has still decided to self-isolate “out of the abundance of caution.”

“The President will during this precautionary self-isolation period, be working from the Presidential Villa at the Jubilee House, Accra,” the statement added.
