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 Ministerâ€™s sample test last Thursday, July 16 turned out negative.
â€œThe Senior Minister thanks well wishers and the Ghana Health Service team for their care,â€ the Minister added.
Meanwhile, Ghanaâ€™s active cases of COVID-19 is 4,058 indicating a steep decline in the countryâ€™s disease burden.
Mr Oppong Nkrumah, therefore, cautioned the public not to use the improvement in the countryâ€™s recovery rate to be reckless in observing the safety and preventive etiquettes.
