The Ghana Health Service has declared Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah, the MP for Tema West and former Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry COVID-19 negative.

Mr Ahenkorah recently resigned as deputy minister after he was accused of breaching the COVID-19 protocols even when he had tested positive but was asymptomatic.

A letter written to the Tema East MP dated Friday 9th July 2020 and signed by the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye disclosed that Mr. Ahenkorah has obtained two consecutive negative laboratory test results for COVID-19.

“For this reason you are deemed to have recovered from Covid-19 infection and so can return to work,” the letter added.

The GHS has however cautioned the former deputy minister to continue to observe the precautionary measures since he is not immune from contracting the virus.

These include the use of a face mask at all times especially in public places, frequent washing of hands with soap under running water and covering of mouth and noise with tissue paper when coughing or sneezing and disposing of the used tissue properly.

Attached is a copy of the letter from the GHS boss to Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah.
