The Member of Parliament for Okere constituency, Dan Botwe has been discharged after being hospitalised at the University of Ghana Medical Centre for covid-19 treatment.
A Press Statement issued by the District Chief Executive for Okere District Assembly, Daniel Kenneth on his behalf dismissed rumours that the lawmaker has succumbed to the virus.
“It has come to our notice the rumour circulating that Hon. Daniel Botwe, MP for Okere Constituency is dead. I wish to inform the general public that this news is false and should be treated with all the contempt it deserves.
“Hon Daniel Botwe is fine by God’s Grace and has been discharged today Saturday, 4th July, 2020 around 1pm.”
An earlier press statement signed by the MP himself weeks ago said he is on admission upon feeling unwell.
“I have undertaken several tests including tests for Covid-19 and await results”, he said, promising to relay the test results to the public when due.
Meanwhile, President Akufo Addo effective, July 4, 2020, has taken a fourteen(14) day precautionary self-isolation measure in compliance with COVID-19 protocols, upon advice from his doctors.
A statement signed by Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Minister of Information said the President elected to do so after at least one person within his close circle tested positive for Covid-19.
“He has, as at today, tested negative, but has elected to take this measure out of the abundance of caution.
“The President will during this precautionary self-quarantine period, be working from the Presidential Villa at the Jubilee House, Accra,” the statement added.
