Ghanaians have been asked to disregard information that indicates that the President, Nana Akufo-Addo has been flown to London to receive treatment for coronavirus.
This is according to the Director of Communications at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin.
The Information Minister, in a statement yesterday [Saturday] disclosed that Akufo-Addo is on a 14-day self-isolation after getting exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
The statement said the President had tested negative for the virus but has still decided to self-isolate “out of the abundance of caution”.
Even though the statement indicated that the President will “be working from the Presidential
Villa at the Jubilee House, Accra”, a report by the Herald Newspaper published today [Sunday] said that he has been “flown out of the country” for treatment.
Eugene Arhin, in a Facebook post, insisted that “the President is in the country, and he is currently at the Presidential Villa in Jubilee House, observing the 14-day self-isolation precautionary measure, in compliance with COVID-19 protocols” hence the general public must “disregard the false story” in the newspaper.
