Vice President of Liberia, Jewel Howard-Taylor has been flown to Ghana after developing “respiratory complications.”

The former first lady of the country flew out of Liberia on Tuesday after her condition worsened.

According to a statement from her office, she was first sent to a private medical facility in the Liberian capital where she spent four days.

Speaking to the Associated Press, her press officer, Solomon Ware said the Monrovia-based clinic recommended her transfer to a more advanced healthcare facility abroad.

He, however, rejected claims linking her ailment to COVID-19.

Liberia’s health sector just like other sectors has remained weak since the country’s civil war ended 17 years ago. Government officials and those who can afford it routinely travel abroad for medical attention.

The 56-year-old, Howard-Taylor is an ex-wife of former Liberian President Charles Taylor who is serving a prison sentence for war crimes.
