Presidential advisor on health, Dr. Anthony Nsiah-Asare, has revealed some of the medicines given to people infected by the deadly Coronmavirus (COVID-19) in Ghana.
Following the outbreak of the virus in November 2019, Ghana has so far recorded 195 cases with 5 deaths.
In a report sighted on Peacefmonline.com, three (3) of the confirmed cases have fully recovered and reverted to negative status for COVID-19 after repeat test following recovery from symptoms.
Apart from that forty-nine (49) of the confirmed cases have significantly improved with no symptoms and have been discharged from admission for home care pending repetition of laboratory tests.
However, there is a huge debate on some of the medications given to COVID-19 patients. This controversy started when US President Donald Trump mentioned Chloroquine as potential remedies for coronavirus.
Meanwhile, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the Afigya Kwabre South of the Ashanti Region, Christian Adu-Poku, has been videoed in a severe altercation with some police officers.
Watch the video below:
While details of what sparked the near fist fight between the government official and the police officers remain sketchy, it appears the officers were attempting to get Hon. Christian Adu-Poku to comply with the president’s directive regarding the partial lockdown.
Some parts of Accra, Kasoa and Tema, Kumasi and its environs are currently observing a partial lockdown in accordance with a directive by President Akufo-Addo.
