Sophia Addo, a 54-year-old Ghanaian nurse who worked with the Ghana Manganese Company Hospital in Tarkwa Nsuta has been reported dead after contracting the novel coronavirus.
In a statement from the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives sighted by YEN.com.gh, the rather sad incident actually occurred on May 8, 2020.
It is indicated that the woman took ill on May 6, 2020, after which her condition worsened the very next day with signs of COVID-19.
See the statement below:
Everything possible was done to stabilize the richly experienced Ghanaian nurse but on May 8, 2020, she sadly gave up the ghost.
Sophia Addo was said to have been asthmatic and hypertensive, which served as underlying health conditions that made her more vulnerable to the disease.
Ghana Manganese Company Hospital, the hospital where she worked, was where the first two cases of COVID-19 were recorded in the Western Region of Ghana.
In another report, a skit of Kuami Eugene starring Comedian Waris, Stonzy and Ohene Yaw Wiafe Anim has shown that the Ghanaian Rockstar musician could actually be a great actor.
In the video, Eugene Kwame Marfo as his real name goes, was in his car with his pals when he was besieged by a group of bypassers he appeared to have nearly hit with his car.
When the near-collision occurred, the group of young men came to the driver's side to complain about the incident only for the glass to be rolled down for them to realize was Kuami Eugene.
