President, the Private Newspaper Publishers Association of Ghana (PRINPAG), Mr. Andrew Edwin Arthur who gave the advise bemoaned the lack of discipline and disregard for the lockdown directive.
According to him, the coronavirus will soon go away hence the need for Ghanaians to abstain from sex for the period we are in to help prevent the spread.
Recounting a story he watched on TV concerning a man who agreed to accommodate a young lady who claimed she was being chased by some people in exchange for sex, he said the lady was actually escaping from an isolation centre after testing positive for the virus.
The man he disclosed denied at first when he was asked if he had seen a lady that fit the description of the one he accommodated until the news was broke to him the lady was being chased for escaping from the isolation centre.
He admonished Ghanaians to strictly adhere to the preventive measures, stay at home so the virus is not spread to other areas.
The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has disclosed some 17 persons have fully recovered from the coronavirus disease.
Director-General of the Service, Dr Patrick Aboagye disclosed this at the Information Ministry’s press briefing on Covid-19 in the country.
He explained that patients are only declared free from the disease after they have recorded two consecutive negatives.
“Currently we have 83 people in that category. A significant number have tested the first negative but we have 17 who have recorded double negatives and are obviously clinically cured.”
Dr Aboagye also disclosed that out of the 566 confirmed Covid-19 cases in the country, 208 who are all well, asymptomatic, or in mild condition are being treated at home and in isolation centres across the country.
For the 66 patients who have had their first negative test after contracting the disease, the Director-General said they will be tested again and “chances are that they will all test negative again.”
