Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes
Information reaching YEN.com.gh indicated that two
According to a report filed by theghanareport.com as monitored on JoyNews, the two have been on the run for three days now since their coronavirus status was confirmed to them.
The information about them is quite little but YEN.com.gh is duly informed that the woman is a head potter, also known in our local parlance as ‘Kayayoo’ who is a mother of three.
Residents in the slum area who know the head potter said she lives together with her three children in a single room shared by 15 others.
As part of the mass testing conducted by health officials on Sunday, April 5, 2020, the results showed 24 hours later that the two persons on the run were positive.
Attempts by contact tracers to get the two to agree to go under isolation failed as the team was met with fierce resistance from residents of the slum when blood samples of contacts of the affected person wanted to be taken.
Interestingly rumour has it that the community said that the contact tracers were only there to draw their blood to be used for rituals.
In a related development, the Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Owusu Amankwah, has revealed that an individual who has tested positive for COVID 19 is in hiding in the Tafo Municipality of the Ashanti Region.
He added that the patient fled from an isolation centre in the country but refused to give further details of which particular centre it was.
He made this revelation while speaking on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM on Thursday, April 9, 2020.
