The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) campaign manager for the 2020 general elections, Peter Mac Manu is in a stable condition and responding to treatment.
Mr. Manu, who was admitted at the Intensive Care Unit of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital after testing positive for COVID-19 about a week ago is now said to be showing positive signs of improved health status.
Deputy Health Minister, Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye disclosed this to Citi News, while providing an update on the status of some Ministers who are at the various COVID-19 treatment centres across the country.
According to him, all of them are currently healthy.
“I have had WhatsApp chats with the Education Minister, I know Dan Botwe is fine. I spoke to the doctors who are attending to [Peter] Mac Manu and they tell me he is in high spirits and very stable so let’s wish them well.”
Dr. Okoe Boye also disclosed that the substantive Health Minister, Kwaku Agyeman Manu has also recovered after getting infected with COVID-19 a few weeks ago.
According to him, Mr. Agyeman Manu is hale and hearty and has fully resumed his official duties.
“Once he has been asymptomatic for two weeks, I don’t want to even go into his test results, but two weeks of being asymptomatic, you have recovered. It’s been two weeks, so the deduction is that he has recovered. So the Health Minister is back to work. On Friday, he was at the Ga East Hospital to inspect the projects that are going on with the treatment centres. He started work before this interview so I guess he will be at work,” he indicated.
