Click to read all about coronavirus →

Member of Parliament for Effutu Constituency in the Central Region, Alexander Kwamina Afenyo-Markin has denied news publications that claimed he has contracted Coronavirus and was on admission.

Other government officials including the Minister for Regional Reorganisation and Development, Dan Botwe, and Education Minister Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh were said to have also contracted the virus.

3news.com is, however, able to confirm that Dr Opoku Prempeh is currently on self-isolation at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) on suspicion that he may have contracted the virus.

“By the grace of God, I’m not in the state [the editor] is imagining me to be or he is thinking I’m in, or I’m not in the state those his sources have told him I’m in,” he said in a Facebook live interview.

He explained that he has been in Winneba the past few days and was at the Winneba High Court on Monday and Tuesday.

The Facebook live video showed that he had just finished another court session Wednesday and decided to clarify the matter from the forecourt of the court.

Mr. Afenyo said he will not sue the media house in question but would wish that they do the needful in subsequent publications.

He mentioned he will be in Parliament later in the day.

  1. Hello there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I truly enjoy reading your blog posts. Can you recommend any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects? Thanks!

  2. Great article. It is rather unfortunate that over the last one decade, the travel industry has had to fight terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, bird flu, swine flu, and also the first ever real global tough economy. Through it the industry has really proven to be solid, resilient and dynamic, locating new ways to deal with difficulty. There are always fresh challenges and opportunity to which the market must yet again adapt and respond.
