Speaking to JoyNews, the Upper West Regional Director of the Ghana Health Service, Dr Osei Kufuor Afreh, the patient is also one of the region’s imported COVID-19 cases.

“... having given him feedback on his test results, it has been very difficult to reach him. For almost 48 hours now, it has been difficult to reach him,” Dr Afreh.

He said his outfit had plans of transporting Chukudi to the regional isolation centre, but all efforts to get in touch with the infected person have failed.
