President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says at no point in time during his 14-day self-isolation was he flown to the United Kingdom for COVID-19 treatment.
After the president announced his 14-day self-isolation some media outlets reported that President Akufo-Addo had been sent abroad to receive treatment for the infection but the President says those reports were malicious and must be disregarded.
President Akufo-Addo said he was surprised by the media reports he stated that he had been in Ghana throughout his two weeks isolation period.
President Akufo Addo made this known during his first public appearance on Tuesday, July 21, 2020, after his 14-day self-isolation at a meeting with Vehicles and Asserts Dealers Union of Ghana.
“I will want to thank you for your interest in my welfare. I am fine and I am here. I was sitting in my room and I was told I was sitting in a plane for Oxford and I was amazed, but here it is; this is the Ghana where we live”, he said.
The President went into self-isolation for 14 days as a precautionary measure after being exposed to a person who tested positive for Coronavirus.
