Inter Milan ace Kwadwo Asamoah has joined Ghana’s fight against the coronavirus pandemic by making a cash donation of $20,000 [GHC 116,000].

The left-back presented a cheque to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi, the place where he started his career with local side Asokwa Deportivo.

The donation was made on his behalf as the player, who last played for the Black Stars at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Egypt, is caught up in Italy where he plays club football.

A photo sighted on social media on Tuesday showed Asamoah’s team making the presentation to officials at the health facility.

Ghana’s fight against the coronavirus is intensifying owing to the continuous rise of cases.

The West African nation has so far had a total of 639 cases involving eight deaths and 17 recoveries.

The country, like Italy, is currently on a partial lockdown amid a ban on all public gatherings.
