YEN.com.gh earlier reported that 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.”
