Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Maafo

Senior Minister Yaw Osafo-Maafo has tested negative for COVID-19 after undergoing self-isolation for medical care when he tested positive for the virus a couple of weeks ago.

The Senior Minister asked the Information Minister to announce his COVID-19 status on July 7, after he tested positive for the virus.

Mr Osafo-Maafo has since been under home management receiving medical care.

At a media briefing in Accra to give update on Covid-19 Case Count and Management, on Sunday, Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said the Senior Minister’s sample test last Thursday, July 16 turned out negative.

“The Senior Minister thank well wishers and the Ghana Health Service team for their care,” the Minister added.

Meanwhile, Ghana’s active cases of COVID-19 is 4,058 indicating a steep decline in the country’s disease burden.

Mr Oppong Nkrumah, therefore, cautioned the public not to use the improvement in the country’s recovery rate to be reckless in observing the safety and preventive etiquettes.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
