COVID-19: Carlos Ahenkorah recovers from disease


Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah, the MP for Tema West and former Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry has recovered from the deadly Covid-19 disease, the Ghana Health Service says.

This was revealed in a letter written to the Tema East MP dated Friday, July 9, 2020, and signed by the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye.

Mr Ahenkorah has obtained two consecutive negative laboratory test results for Covid-19.

The former Deputy Minister has however been cautioned to continue to observe the all safety protocols since he is not immune from contracting the virus.

It would be recalled that the lawmaker was heavily criticised by many Ghanaians for breaching COVID-19 protocols by visiting a registration centre despite being aware that he had tested positive for the virus.

The intense pressure from the public led to his resignation from his position as the Deputy Trade Misniter.
