A presidential staffer, Charles Nii Teiko Tagoe, has recovered from the novel COVID-19, calling on all to stop the stigmatisation.
In a Facebook post on Saturday, July 18, 2020, Tagoe, popularly called ‘Cyber’ within his close circles, said: “A couple of weeks ago, I tested positive for the COVID 19 virus. By God’s will and grace, I have survived and have fully recovered. It is unimaginable what one has to go through for the 14 days living with COVID.”

Tagoe has therefore taken to social media to step up the campaign against stigmatisation of people with the virus.
He added: “I am sharing my journey with you with the hope that you will find it informative enough to help curb the spread. We have the power to slow and stop this virus. Whilst we are at it, let us say no to COVID stigmatization.”
On July 5, 2020, Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo began self-isolating after getting exposed to someone with COVID-19. It is not clear whether it has any correlation with Mr. Tagoe’s case.
The two-week isolation ended on Saturday, July 18, 2020.
YEN.com.gh also earlier reported that seven out of the 55 students who tested positive for COVID-10 at the Accra Girls SHS have been discharged after testing negative.
According to our sources, the seven students have recovered and are doing well.
About two weeks ago, it was reported that six students from Accra Girls had tested positive for the disease.
