Dr Badu Sarkodie, director of public health at the Ghana Health Service, has revealed that one person who showed symptoms of the deadly coronavirus (CODVID-19) though tested negative died over the weekend in Kumasi.
According to Dr Badu Sarkodie, the deceased arrived in Ghana from Germany and reported of a condition that echoed the coronavirus (CODVID-19).
Further in his reports, an emergency test on him(deceased) proved that he was free of the virus but died later at the hospital.
The revelation is strange because, at least 129 people have tested positive for Covid-19 in Germany, with the number of cases doubling yesterday.
More than half of the cases are in North Rhine-Westphalia, which counts Düsseldorf, Cologne, and Dortmund as its biggest cities; there are large Ghanaian communities in all these cities.
Dr Badu Sarkodie, however, could not immediately tell what killed the person but said the Ghana Health Service is still investigating the matter with the aid of the Kumasi Center for Collaborative Research.
This is the first death in the 26 suspected cases of the deadly disease that has proven negative in Ghana since the outbreak of the viral disease.
