Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has appointed Anarfi Asamoa-Baah, former deputy director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), as the presidential coordinator for the government’s coronavirus response program.

Asamoa-Baah will be president’s point man for the response effort and will be responsible for pulling together and coordinating all aspects of the government’s response program, the presidency said in a release.

He comes to the job with a suitable wealth of experience such as supervising the creation of a new health emergency program in the WHO following the Ebola outbreak in 2014, leading its work in developing the Ebola vaccine, among several others.

His appointment comes at a time when the west African country, which has recorded more than 10 cases of the COVID-19, had instituted measures to prevent the spread of the disease. Enditem
