A middle-aged Ghanaian father and husband who has recovered from the novel coronavirus or COVID-19 has narrated how he was able to recover in an interview with TV3 Ghana.

According to the gentleman named Simeon Teye Narteh, he was selected by his organisation to undergo training in France, which he went to and interacted with many people.

He mentioned that whilst still in France, he started developing a sore throat, which is one of the most common symptoms of the novel coronavirus.

Because he knew of the symptoms of COVID-19, Simeon immediately opted to be tested when he touched down in Ghana and was confirmed positive.

"I was panicking, not just because of myself but because I felt I would put my entire family in danger as my wife was also having some health problems," Simeon recalls.

When the condition started to get worse, Simeon said he could not breathe on two prominent occasions, but he was immediately assisted to come back to normal state.

From then, Simeon was taking a lot of water, taking vitamins, eating well and taking supportive drugs given to him by the medical officers. Not long after, he recovered.

Several Ghanaians have been reacting to the story. Kwaku Boateng Boakye-Appiah commended the gentleman for his move to get tested early:

Owusuwaa Obiri-Yeboah asked people doubting the disease to believe it now:

Meanwhile, a mother who appeared to have been tired of being worried by her son decided to give him a task of counting a bowl of rice so she can have time to rest amid the lockdown exercise.

The video was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Celebritiesbuzzgh and it is not clear the exact location where it was recorded.

In the video, the mother carefully instructed the young innocent boy to use the counting skills he was taught in class to execute the task for her whilst she goes to the room and "lies down" waiting for him.
