The Managing Director of Nyaho Medical Centre located at Airport Residential Area, 35 Kofi Annan St, Accra has been confirmed to have tested positive for COVID-19.
According to a report by Myjoyonline.com, the Media Laison of the medical centre, Rita Agyeiwaa Rockson confirms that although Dr Elikem Tamaklo’s positive diagnosis has affected his family, they are all well.
Rita Agyeiwaa also added that all of them have been self-isolating together and are taking all the medical advice and precautionary measures.
Speaking about how the top official possibly got infected with the new coronavirus, Rita Agyeiwaa explains that it was not from the hospital itself.
“Over the last two weeks, Dr Tamaklo was not physically present on the hospital premises and thus, we can confirm that the exposure was from the community,” Agyeiwaa Rockson said.
Currently, as part of the Medical Centre’s Business Continuity Plan, non-clinical staff (including the MD) have been working remotely from home through virtual meetings since March 23, 2020, she disclosed.
Meanwhile, a young group of Ghanaian men have been recorded in a video as they were caught red-handed dumping rubbish along the Accra-Tema Motorway in broad daylight.
The action of the young men comes as an interesting surprise as the Ghana government set an agenda to make Ghana the cleanest city in Africa.
In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Facts and Truths, it appears that a civilian first spotted the young men and drew the attention of the military officer.
