A newly-suspected case of coronavirus otherwise known as COVID-19 that was identified at Weija-Gbawe in the Greater Accra-Region has turned out negative.
It would be recalled how YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a 38-year-old Ghanaian lady who returned from the United Kingdom to Ghana on March 6, 2020, reported to the hospital with symptoms strikingly resembling COVID-19.
It was reported that the victim was quarantined, awaiting further directives and transfer to the Noguchi Memorial Research Centre for further tests.
In a statement, the Weija-Gbawe Municipal Assembly later explained that the 38-year-old lady reported at the hospital with a case of sore throat, high temperature and difficulty in breathing which are symptoms of the COVID-19 but laboratory tests at the Noguchi Medical Centre have proved negative.
"The Weija-Gbawe Municipal Hospital, therefore, has no case of COVID-19," the statement said.
This is such positive news for the 38-year-old who had returned from the United Kingdom as it would have added to make the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases eight as of March 18, 2020.
In other news, popular Ghanaian actor John Dumelo who is standing as a parliamentary candidate at the Ayawaso West Constituency has donated to all police stations in the constituency to fight COVID-19.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook handle of the NDC candidate, Dumelo made it clear that the items were donated to all the police stations at the constituency.
It is indicated that the 'safety' items included veronica buckets, hand sanitizers, detergents and hand gloves which are expected to help all the officers stay protected against COVID-19.
