The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has begun a 14-day precautionary self-isolation measure in compliance with the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) upon advice from his doctors.

The decision by the President to self-isolate follows “at least one person within his close circle” testing positive positive of COVID-19 on Saturday, July 4, 2020.

A statement signed by the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, and released in Accra said the President “has, as at today, tested negative, but elected to take this measure out of the abundance of caution”.

“The President will during this precautionary self-isolation period, be working from the Presidential Villa at the Jubilee House, Accra”, the statement in part further read.
