Ghana Records First Coronavirus Patient Recovery

A Chinese man in Ghana has recovered fully after contracting the deadly coronavirus.

He was one of the few people who flew into the country in the early stages of the outbreak in Ghana.

He was quarantined after showing symptoms that matched the case definition of the Ghana Health Service. Further tests proved positive for COVID-19.

After a few days of treatment at the Atonsu Agogo Hospital in the Ashanti Region, he showed remarkable improvement.

Here is a video of the patient walking out of the Atonsu Agogo Hospital:

He walked out of the facility on Wednesday after being certified clean of the virulent infection after several tests showed he was negative.

The government is expected to provide further details of the recovery anytime soon.

“The lockdown though not a comfortable decision for leadership and citizens alike is a proven option backed by science and along with the other measures will ultimately be in our best interest.

“We call on all Ghanaians to support such a move in the national interest to save our nation from the devastating effects of this pandemic,” the statement said.
