Reports circulating in the media on Wednesday suggested Rawlings was rushed to the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital after falling ill.

The report got many concerned, especially after Rawlings’ official Facebook page confirmed that he had indeed been admitted to the KBTH.

However, the statement said such a publication was erroneous, pointing out that the former president’s admission at the hospital was just a precautionary measure.

Rawlings was reportedly admitted to the Cardiothoracic Unit of the KBTH a week ago as a precautionary measure to manage a low blood count condition.

The former president’s office, however, assured the public that “the primary cause has since been detected and managed”.

The statement added that Rawlings “has no immediate plans of seeking medical treatment outside the country”, after initial diagnosis from doctors.
