COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on all facet of life, from our schools to the church and the economy as a whole. The danger posed by the virus has been the talk of the town. Ghana has embarked on serious enhanced contact tracing with over 170,000 persons tested so far. This article focuses on some Ghanaian celebrities and Ghanaian government officials who have tested for the virus and made it known to the public regardless of their status.



Bice Osei Kuffuor who is also known as Obour is the former Musician Union of Ghana President. The musician and politician tested for the virus after he came into contact with his late dad who is a chief at Asante Dwaso, Nana Osei Boansi Kuffour.

Gifty Anti

Television broadcaster Oheneyere Gifty Anti also tested negative after undertaking her first and second coronavirus (COVID-19) test. The celebrated on-screen personality underwent the process after returning from the United Kingdom (UK) in April. However, Gifty Anti maintained that she was still taking precaution and will undergo further tests.


 The minister of Health for the Republic Of Ghana tested positive for coronavirus last week. The news started as speculations on various social media platforms but the minister allegedly told journalist Afia Pokua that he hasn’t tested positive and was just taking a rest at the hospital. However, President Nana Addo Danquah Akkufo Addo confirmed that indeed the Minister has tested positive during  his 11th Address to the nation on Ghana Coronavirus response. The minister is currently seeking medical attention at the University of Ghana Medical Centre. Reports coming in indicate that the Member of Parliament for Dormaa Central in the Bono Region of Ghana is recovering and in a stable condition. He has been MP for Dormaa West and Central for two terms and now serving his 3rd term.


Celebrity Tailor Elikem Kumordzie was also tested for the virus after he was placed under mandatory quarantine. The Big Brother contestant results came out as negative after the 14-day quarantine. Kumordzie took to social media to inform his fans immediately after he received the results.



Ghana’s High Commissioner to the UK and Ireland, Papa Owusu Ankomah was diagnosed with the novel coronavirus. Reports indicated that Mr Owusu Ankomah tested positive for the Covid-19 on Friday, April 10, 2020, and was sent to the Intensive Care Unit in a London Hospital.

The politician has since recovered from the virus.

Papa Owusu Ankomah has served as Ghana’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland since June 2017.



The recent one is Gary Al-Smith who is a sports journalist for multimedia Group Limited. He was one of the five staff at the Accra office of the media company who tested positive for the disease yesterday and are asymptomatic. The Journalist and the other four people have been isolated. Management of the company has since put out a statement explaining the positive cases at its premises in Accra were discovered after contact tracing by the Ghana Health Service (GHS).

Gary openly came out to announce to the public his status on Facebook and that was basically to fight stigmatization. He is bent on being Ghana’s ambassador against the stigmatization of persons who tested positive for COVID-19. He is now the first Ghanaian journalist to openly declare his status, although there are reports around that some members of the Parliamentary press corps have tested positive for the virus.


Head of Ghana’s Health Insurance Authority, NHIA, Dr Dsane-Selby announced on Monday that she had also tested positive for COVID-19.
