The number of infected persons for COVID-19 in Ghana is surging and some of these sufferers are sharing their distressing experience with the public.
Recently, a Ghanaian who tested positive for coronavirus and is now in isolation has advised the public to stay home to avoid catching the disease.
He strongly recommended that people should comply with the president's directive including avoiding social gatherings.
In an interview on the Executive Breakfast Show (EBS) on Class91.3FM on Thursday, March 26, 2020, Nii said people should take the virus serious because it is real.
Nii got infected with the dreaded disease while in Paris, where he had travelled for training after he was promoted at his workplace and had to acquire a new skill for the role.
On March 14, 2020, he arrived in Ghana with a cough unaware that he was infected.
Nii notes that when he was coming back to Ghana, the symptoms were not strong because he was having a mere cough which started in France.
According to him he thought he was only reacting to a chemical that was spread in the atmosphere because he was allergic to it.
On 15 March, Nii reported himself to the health authorities and went in for a voluntary test.
He received the test results on March 17, 2020, which confirmed his positive status for the virus and was isolated.
Speaking to host Benjamin Akakpo, Nii said: ''Initially, when I tested positive, it wasn’t easy for me because I came into contact with my family.''
Although he feared for his family, they tested negative for the disease.
According to him, he gave the list of all those he had come into contact with to officials of the Ghana Health Service.
He remarked that:''Isolation is not a good thing and I don’t wish it for any Ghanaian.''
He, however, applauded the health professionals at the front line of the fight for their professionalism.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Health Service has said as on the morning of March 26, 2020, that a total of 54 COVID-19 cases including three deaths have been confirmed from the regular surveillance systems.
This brings the total number of cases to 132.
