According to President Akufo-Addo, his Health Minister is in a stable condition and responding to health care.

In his 11th address to the nation on measures put in place to reduce the spread of coronavirus in the country, President Akufo-Addo said “Let us wish or hard working Health Minister, Honourable Kwaku Agyeman Manu, MP for Dormaa Central a speedy recovery from the virus which he contracted in the line of duty and is in a stable condition”

It emerged that Ghana’s health Minister had contracted the novel virus and was admitted at the University of Ghana Medical Centre.

Although the news has been met by mixed reactions on social media, many Ghanaians are calling for the Health Minister to be transferred to his hometown to receive treatment.

Weeks ago, President Akufo Addo lambasted the largest opposition party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) saying their so-called infrastructure development was a fantasy which only existed in the green book.

A message which was not well accepted by the followers of the NDC sparked a heated argument on social media as a section of the public hooted and lambasted the Akufo-Addo admission calling them ungrateful and liars.

President Akufo-Addo however used his 11th update to pay tribute to the late Mayor of Sekondi Takoradi, K.K. Sam, who he was reported to have passed away after contracting the deadly coronavirus

He said “May his soul rest in peace”
