Ghanaians never expected coronavirus cases in Ghana to hit thousands, not to talk of crossing 20,000. While Ghana’s recovery rate is one of the highest on the Africa continent, over 100 people have lost their lives as result of complications from the virus.

We have no proper systems to ensure that there are proper social distancing protocols observed in the market places and commercial vehicles. And the people who patronize such places are those who are living in a single room with all their family. You can imagine how it would be if one contracts the virus from these places and keep on infecting others. It will spread as rapid as a wildfire in the dry season.

Popular Ghanaians like K.K Sam, the Mayor of Sekondi Takoradi, and Sir John, have died from the virus. However, several notable or famous Ghanaians who contracted the virus has recovered, and some of them are championing the campaign against stigmatisation against persons who have recovered from the virus.

Hon. Kwaku Agyeman Manu, the Minister for Health, was one of the top government officials who contracted the virus. He didn’t announce it himself and went to isolation. Even when it reached the media, he denied and said he was taking a rest at the health facility. Unfortunately for him, the president exposed him by announcing it in one of his addresses to the nation. He said the Minister got the Coronavirus in his line of duty. He recovered after two weeks of treatment at the University of Ghana Medical Center.

Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyemang-Manu

Garry Al – Smith is the Head of sports at Joy FM and Joy News. He is one of the boldest Coronavirus celebrities in Ghana. Even before he was affected, he used his social media platforms for public education because he has a lot of followers. After he, unfortunately, contracted the virus, he announced it and gave education to the public throughout his stay at the University of Ghana Medical Center.

He wrote on one evening that he would expose the health system of Ghana and branded it as “useless”. He was quickly discharged from the hospital as being recovered.

Hon. Matthew Opoku Prempeh known as Napo, the Minister for Education, wrote through his press secretary that he was detained at the University of Ghana Medical Center awaiting his Coronavirus test results. According to him, he had tested negative for the virus but still felt unwell, so he decided to go into quarantine till his results come. He tested positive and recovered after going through the treatment process.

Hon. Carlos Ahenkora, who got sacked as a result of the virus, has also recovered. He got the virus the same time Hon. Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie kicked the bucket from the virus. He discharged himself albeit with the virus and went round his Constituency monitoring the voter registration process.

The public found his conduct to be insensitive and dangerous for public safety. He relieved himself of his position as a result of the reckless steps he took.

Nii Teikoe Tagoe, a presidential staffer at the Jubilee House and former aid to the president of the Republic of Ghana also announce that he has recovered from the virus. He has joined Hon . Matthew Opoku Prempeh and others in their fight against stigmatization. They have been spotted in branded T-shirts campaigning against stigmatisation.

Hon. Dan Botwe is still at the University of Ghana Medical Center. He has not communicated with the public after his first announcement. So we’ll take it that he is still there receiving treatment.

Hon. Peter Mac Manu, the campaign manager for the New Patriotic Party for both 2016 and 2020 also got the virus. According to Carlos Ahenkora, they were all in the same ward at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. He spent more than 14 days at the treatment centre. Some media reports found that he was in the Intensive Care Unit because he was severely ill.

Not much is known of Mac Manu’s condition but it is our prayer that he, Dan Botwe, and the thousands of people who are currently on admission get well soon.
