The suspected person, who works with a mining company, is said to have returned to the Kotoka International Airport after a trip abroad this week, in March 2020, and flew in a helicopter to Obuasi.

Sources reveal, the sufferer, who appeared sick upon arrival avoided contact with people and would not allow attendants at the airport to touch his luggage.

He, however, willfully reported himself to a health facility in Kumasi where a series of tests were carried out to confirm whether or not he had been infected.
