I’m not in ICU, I’ve been discharged – Carlos Ahenkorah
A Deputy Minister of Trade, Mr Carlos Ahenkorah, has denied media reports that he has been rushed to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after testing positive for COVID-19.
In a short statement on Thursday, 2 July 2020, Mr Ahenkorah said: “My attention has been drawn to messages circulating on social media to the effect that I am in ICU after testing positive for COVID-19 sending worrying signals and misinformation to my well-wishers and party faithful”.
“I must categorically state that I am not in ICU”, Mr Ahenkorah noted, adding: “Neither am I in Korle Bu at the moment”.
“I was admitted for an overnight review on my COVID status at the isolation centre in Korle Bu yesterday around 5 pm and discharged at 11 am this morning”.
“I have not, in any way, been taken ill or suffer any serious break down to send me into ICU. I ask all and sundry to disregard this hollow speculation and confirm I’m as fit as I used to be. Thank you!”
